Players can be recalled--going through waivers if necessary--but most other transactions are prohibited unless it involves coming into compliance with exceptions like LTIR.
13.15 Holiday Roster Freeze. For all Players on an NHL Active Roster, Injured
Reserve, or Players with Non-Roster and Injured Non-Roster status as of midnight local
time December 19, a roster freeze shall apply through midnight local time December 27,
with respect to Waivers, Trades and Loans; provided, however, that Players may be
Recalled to NHL Clubs during this period and, provided further, that if a Player is placed
on Regular Waivers or Re-Entry Waivers prior to the roster freeze period and is claimed
during such roster freeze period, the roster freeze period shall not apply and the Player
shall immediately report to the claiming Club. However, during the roster freeze period a
Club can make any Player transactions necessary for the Club to come into compliance
with Article 50 as a result of a Player being removed from the Bona Fide Long-Term
Injury/Illness Exception.
