Best Answer

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.
