Adam Pardy activated from IR; Philip Larsen assigned to AHL

The Dallas Stars have activated defenseman Adam Pardy from injured reserve. Pardy missed the first four games of the season with a rib injury he suffered in an October 1 preseason game against St. Louis. Pardy is expected to play in Saturday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

To make room for Pardy on the roster, the Stars have assigned defenseman Philip Larsen to the Texas Stars of the AHL. Larsen played in three games this season, going scoreless while averaging 13:31 of ice time.
