Yet it is reported that he isn't on the AHL roster either. So the question still exists, how can he be on nobody's roster? Since we know he is not counting against the NHL roster the question becomes, could he be violating any league rules by continuing to stay, practice, and travel with the big club although not counting against the roster or cap limits.

He could not be on IR in ANA without counting against the 23 man roster. Perhaps when Rakell gets sent back HL could be added to IR if he is close to actually playing in ANA.
I suspect that since he was hurt while assigned to the Swedish Junior Team that he is not counted against either the NHL or AHL roster until he is medically cleared to return to play.
