Anyone ever seen a team that dresses 5 lines of forwards, 6 defensemen, 2 goalies? I thought 20 was the limit.
Talk about a money grab. Do tell what org.
I would bet the South Shore Kings. Big money grab over there these days.
USA hockey rules say the limit is 20.
I've been curious about this as I look into this path for my bender. When you look on the USPHL website the majority of these teams list 24-28 players with some only seeing a game or 2, granted the official league games they were tracking on the site are minimal due to pandemic. Is this just a case of kids filling in due to injury or HS starting and regular players trying to do both and not showing so alternates are needed? Are these kids signed as alternates or just kids looking for games? I've looked at livebarn and seen teams with some pretty short benches compared to the roster listings on usphl site or eliteprospects.
Pretty sure they are fillins for injury or other reasons.
