My guess: Schenn's here for the season, and this "conditioning assignment" lets him remain in Manchester for a maximum of 14 days. He'll likely stay there for the whole 2 weeks.

Now, depending on how many conditioning assignments an NHL player is permitted to be placed on (I couldn't find out anywhere online) during the course of a season, I suspect this is could be an attempt to get Schenn into the AHL on a part-time basis throughout the season. Perhaps they decided that him acquiring pro-experience now rather than later was worth burning a year of his contract?

Anyone wanna validate or tear this apart? Is there a CBA expert in the house?
