Best Answer

According to Rule 5 of the NHL rulebook, a team must dress 20 players for each game: 2 goalies, 6 defensemen and 12 forwards. Please note, however, that while a team can only dress 20 players per game, the team can have extra players around due to injuries, illness, suspensions, etc, to regular players.
