D'oh. It's 23 until the Trade Deadline, then no limit.

Teams are limited to 50 active NHL contracts (which excludes 18 and 19 year old players signed to NHL ELS contracts who are playing in the Canadian Hockey League).
Teams are limited to a reserve list of 90 players.
NHL Teams must maintain a minimum 20 players on their active roster (18 skaters and two goal tenders); players on the Injured Reserve or Long Term Injured Reserve list do not count against this limit.
NHL Teams are limited to a maximum 23 players on their active roster; players on the Injured Reserve or Long Term Injured Reserve list do not count against this limit. (See salary cap section for further restrictions.) 18 skaters and two goal tenders are dressed for a game.
If a player is put on the Injured Reserve list, he must stay on the IR for at least 7 days. A player can be put on the IR retroactively to the day/game he was injured.
Teams must comply with the 23-man roster limit before the start of the regular season. (Exceptions have been allowed for teams traveling overseas to start play, but must be adhered to upon return to North America.)
The 23-man roster limit does not apply after the trade deadline.
Emergency call ups may exceed the 23-man roster limit. (But the salary cap limit is still in place.)
