Best Answer

if one team pulls their goalie to add a extra player their will be 11 players but the team with 6 players will not have a goalie. other wise their will be 10 players and 2 goalies unless there is a penalty in which case the player that commited the penalty will sit in the penalty box for 2 or 5 minutes depending on the call.
