Injured Reserve List (IR)

If a team opts to put their player on the Injured Reserve List, the following requirements must to be met:

  • First, a team may place a player on the Injured Reserve List if the said player has been injured, incapacitated, or ill and will not be able to perform his duties as a hockey player after having passed the team’s preliminary physical examination for that season.
  • Second, a player with an injury that prevents him from playing for at least seven days from the date the injury was incurred can be placed on the team’s Injured Reserve List. Once a player is placed on the IR list, the team may replace said player on its NHL roster with a player from the minors.
  • Third, a player who has been placed on the Injured Reserve List will not be eligible to compete in NHL games for a period of no less than seven days.

Players on the Injured Reserve List may attend team meetings and meals, travel with the team, and join their practice sessions.

Long-Term Injured Reserve (LTIR)

If a player has an injury that will prevent him from playing for at least 10 NHL games and 24 days in the NHL season, the team may place him on Long-Term Injured Reserve (LTIR), which can be used to exceed the salary cap.

Once a player is put on LTIR, the player’s cap hit stays on the team’s cap payroll. The club will not be given additional cap-space savings to be saved for use in the future. However, LTIR offers relief in case the club's averaged salary, or payroll, starts to go over the upper limit. How much relief the club will get is computed based on the date the player is put on LTIR.

Three equations can be used to decide how much LTIR relief will be given. The first, or basic equation, is used during the season and the off-season, while the second is the training-camp equation, which is used on the last day of the off-season in order to prepare for the first day of the following season. The third equation is used if the player is already on LTIR.

Once a player is cleared to play again, the team activates the player.
