The team could request it but since he didn't play a single game it would be pretty unorthodox.

You can petition the league to have a name on the Cup due to injury or what they call "extenuating circumstances" but I can't see the team doing that for a player that A) lied about an injury and B) didn't play a single game.

In addition, I can't see Bettman wanting to reward a player that purposefully didn't follow the guidelines set forth to mitigate a very sensitive issue for the league.
