From Jay Levin at the Nashville Predators site:
Teams have four different “roster” limits to balance under the league’s regulations; a 20-player “dressed list” for games, a 23-player active NHL roster, a 50-contract maximum, and a 90-player maximum reserve list.
Starting with the largest and working our way down, teams are only allowed to have up to 90 players on its reserve list, whether signed to a standard player contract (SPC) or unsigned. From there teams are only allowed to have up to 50 players signed to contracts for any given season, including those for the players on the active roster and injured reserve lists.
read on for a very comprehensive explanation of how roster limits work.
Note: Levin’s article is part of a series he recently started, looking the business side of the game. His previous entry addressed the basic question of What is the CBA?
