Could ask this about pretty much anything Seattle has done in their existence.

Why are they doing this?
Guess they want him to play 3 games or so there to see how he does before giving him another shot in the NHL for a few more. Can't send him to the AHL directly so the only other place is back to junior and he needs to play. Move buys them at least 3 games.

A better question for me might be why is a team allowed to healthy scratch a player and then send him on a conditioning stint in the first place.   

This is their way of avoiding sending him to the OHL until he plays that one game against Montreal and then gets sent to the World Juniors

Harsh, but fair.

If I remember correctly, they tried banking a couple off Murray in the last game as well.

Hughes practices this shot regularly for these opportunities.

I also recall a Sundin-Mogilny set play using a similar shot to good effect for several goals (one-timers from the red-line corner into the open net).

On the power play Tucker used to set up down low between the circle and the red line hiding in the corner to hammer a one timer off of a Kaberle pass

Oh yeah, he took over that spot after Mogilny moved on.

Network hockey coverage isn't going to draw the line here between the player and the world junior team embroiled in the legal scandal that toppled the Hockey Canada board and its decades of cover ups, is it? Or maybe they are, but how little they're covering this compared to Nylander.
