I dont think they can put him on LTIR because he was hurt playing elsewhere.
Kind of a jerk move but they could do it ( i think)
They have to consider it. He took the risk on his own when he went to play elsewhere during the lockout. He had to take out his own insurance and should continue to collect pay through his insurance. Legally, the Kings aren't obligated to pay him or his medical expenses.
