(Sheppard and Niittymaki are also on the LTIR/IR and their salaries count against the cap. Stalock was injured in AHL, so AFAIK he's on the AHL equivalent of IR and getting a minor league salary.)
McLaren was also injured in the AHL. He was on the "non roster, injured" list and could not come off that list until he passed a physical which he has obviously done. At that point he must be added/assigned to a roster, so he has now been added to SJ's roster and loaned to Worcester on a rehab assignment. His salary counts against SJ's cap while on his rehab assignment (provided it's the 14 day assignment).
I am fairly certain players on the "non roster, injured" list do not count against the cap...certain enough to now say it twice anyway.
There is no IR list in the AHL at all.
