  • The teams submit the names of the participating players at the first Championship Directorate on May 1.
  • The maximum number of players allowed on a Team Registration Form at the beginning of the World Championship is 20 skaters and 3 goalies. The minimum is 15 skaters and 2 goalies.
  • At the first Directorate meeting May 1, the teams must name at least the minimum number of 15 skaters and 2 goalkeepers. The players entered must be present at the championship venue by the time of the Directorate meeting.
  • The remaining players up to the allowed maximum of 20 + 3 must be submitted for players' control two hours before any of the following championship games.
  • During a game, a team may enter (dress) 20 skaters and 2 goalkeepers on the Official Game Sheet, with the emergency goalkeeper standing by if a goalie entered to the Official Game Sheet is unable to play.
  • From the start of the Qualification Round and Relegation Round on May 8 (and until two hours before any of the following games), the teams are entitled to add two additional players (skaters or goalkeepers) to their roster.
