Rosters/Line-Ups:

Each team must dress 20 players for every game (18 skaters and 2 goalies)

The standard line-ups are: 12F/6D with all forwards assigned to one of four even strength lines and 2 defenceman double-shifting on the 4th even strength line. 

You can also use 11F/7D and 10F/8D provided any double shifted players have their second shift on the 4th line only. 

During the playoffs - teams are allowed to have ONE dressed player that can be totally benched or a PP/PK specialist only.  In other words, you can double-shift a forward on the 4th line without having to dress and assign a 7th defenceman.
