Having Lehoux on the roster gives them more flexibility to move guys in and out of the lineup. Players "in residence" can replace roster players during emergency conditions such as call-up, injury or suspension. Basically by listing Lehoux on the roster even though there's zero chance he'll play, they've created a slot they can slide Hogeboom, Miles, Kinasewich or Geisler in and out of as the season winds down and they get into the playoffs...Many AHL teams use this strategy...
