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?
That could be. Maybe he goes on this one, then they call him up for a week or two till the WJC camp for Canada. They release him to play in the WJC then send him to the AHL for another conditioning assignment. Who knows at this point though.
