Six players are allowed on the ice at a time. The number of players on a team typically range anywhere from 12-22 players. It depends on how many players the coach wants on his bench and how many players are allowed on the roster by the league. In the NHL, rosters usually have about 20-22 players.

If you mean how many PLAYERS are on a hockey team, then it can vary. Minor hockey teams often have 12 skaters and 2 goalies, so 124 players. But on an NHL team, they have 4 lines of 5 skaters, so 20 skaters in total. Add on the 2 goalies and you get a total of 22 players on the average NHL hockey team.
If you mean how many PLAYERS PER LINE on a hockey team, then there are 2 Defense, 3 Forwards, and 1 goalie. So that's 5 skaters, and 1 goalie.
