Probably so that Sissons can keep playing during the Olympic break. Moser will already be playing as he will be competing in the Olympics.

I am not sure how exactly this applies but this portion what I have read may be why it's Moser and not Sissons.

Waiver-exempt players who do NOT meet the 87-day or 16-game criteria ARE eligible for loan at anytime prior to the Olympic break through 5 p.m. on the day following the NHL team's final game before the Olympic Break.

If these players are NOT loaned back prior to that 5 p.m. deadline, they will be ineligible for loan for the remainder of the Olympic break.
What I am not sure about is, it says by 5 pm the day after the team's last game before the break. Well the last game is on the 8th and break starts on the 9th so I am unsure how this is applied. It may be somewhere else on the boards here but I am not sure.
