NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Vegas Golden Knights at Dallas Stars
Mark Stone's wife sparks NHL fan banter with 'LTIR' jersey pose

Mark Stone recently found himself at the center of a playful exchange among hockey fans.

A social media post from B/R Open Ice caught Stone's wife, Hayley, in a light-hearted moment with a fan sporting an "LTIR" #61 jersey.

LTIR stands for Long-Term Injured Reserve and 61 is Stone's jersey number, with the fan poking fun at his presence on the list over the past few seasons.

One fan humorously quipped:

"Even his wife knew he wasn’t injured."

Another fan chimed in with:

"Honestly great sense of humour lol."
"Hayley has a sense of Humour, another reason to Love the Stone family," one fan remarked.
"See, I can't hate Vegas fans because they have a sense or humor about the situation," a fan said.

Some fans appreciated the light-hearted approach.

"Okay… that’s fricken hilarious!" exclaimed one fan.
"That’s a tough look," another added.
"For those wondering why they’re joking about it, it’s because y’all won’t stop whining about it," commented another fan.
