Nothing in the CBA says you can't count the days during the Olympic Break, but the other qualifier is number of games - a player cannot be put on LTIR unless it is expected he will be out for a minimum of 10 games AND 24 days - which works against a player getting on LTIR over the break.

Pickles will have only missed 8 games before the break. Unless the team doctor is willing to certify that he is expected to be out through March 4 (2nd game after the Olympics), then he cannot be put on LTIR.
