Vegas Golden Knights in trouble due to Mark Stone's wife

Published May 1, 2024 at 1:29 PM

The Vegas Golden Knights face criticism online following an incident where Mark Stone's wife was photographed posing with a fan sporting an LTIR jersey.

Mark Stone's wife, Hayley Thompson, was spotted posing with a fan wearing a jersey bearing the number 61 and the letters "LTIR," alluding to Stone's history with LTIR (Long-Term Injured Reserve).

I wish I was joking folks. 😳

The posts collectively garnered over half a million views, reigniting skepticism about Stone's frequent use of LTIR, especially just before trade deadlines, only to return for the playoffs. NHL insider Frank Seravalli humorously compared the timing to a high-end watch.

Precision timing that would make @Rolex jealous.

Vegas' handling of LTIR has sparked discussions about the system's fairness, with calls for potential rule changes in the upcoming collective bargaining agreement negotiations over the summer.
