The Vegas Golden Knights have become very familiar with exploiting the NHL's LTIR system, and now, they've done it for a third time this season.

With Mark Stone and Jack Eichel already on the LTIR, many thought Vegas' use of the loophole in the NHL's LTIR system was done for the season, but that's not the case. Ahead of the Golden Knights debut of Tomas Hertl, the team would use the system once more, placing veteran forward William Carrier on LTIR to allow Hertl under their salary cap.
#VegasBorn have retroactively placed F William Carrier on LTIR in order to create the space needed to activate Tomas Hertl.

Fans are certainly allowed to be upset and frustrated over the entire situation, but at this point, this is still legal under the NHL's own rules, and until it changes, we will see teams like Tampa Bay and Vegas continue to make these moves.
The Vegas Golden Knights have activated C Tomá Hertl (knee) from Long-Term Injured Reserve.

Additionally, the Golden Knights have placed LW William Carrier (upper-body) on Long-Term Injured Reserve, retroactive to March 25.

With Hertl, Carrier, Stone and Eichel all coming back into a very talented lineup ahead of the playoffs, it's safe to say that the Western Conference is on notice for the Knights looking to go back-to-back, but next year, the NHL will hopefully look into changing this rule.
