Re: Number of Players
- Does anyone know the number of players a team could dress in the 1966-67
season? Is it 16 players and 2 goalies? I know it was changed in the mid-late
70's, but I'm not sure when exactly or to how many players.

In 1966-67, NHL teams were permitted to dress 16 players plus two
goaltenders. The rule was changed prior to the 1965-66 season, when the two
goaltender rule was introduced. Prior to the 1971-72 season, the NHL upped
the ante to 17 players plus netminders.
