If there have been no penalties, a team will have six players on the ice. Three would be called forwards and are considered offensive players, two would be called defensemen, or blue liners, and would be considered defensive players. The sixth player on the ice for a team is the goaltender.
A NHL team is required to dress a minimum of 20 players, usually consisting of 12 fowards, 6 defensemen, and 2 goalies for a game.
However during playoff games coaches some times elect to dress 10-11 Forwards and 7-8 defensemen for added depth at the D. You can dress 3 goalies and one less F or D but it is rare to see 3 goalies suited up for a regular season/non-playoff game.
There are 59 teams that play Div. I, divided into 6 leagues.
6 players for each team. 12 altogether if you count both sides. 1 Center, 2 wingmen, 2 defense men, and 1 goaltender. 5 players a side if you don't count the goaltender.
As many can dress as you like, but only 16 can play.
usually 4 lines of 3 players 3 defence pairs and 2 goalies dress so usually 20 players dress and you can have up to 23 on your roster
