The Utica Comets have 27 players on their roster.

That means that head coach Travis Green has to tell seven players every game that they won’t be playing.

Matt Becker wrote a must-see column on this.

League rules allow a team to dress 18 skaters and two goalies every game. That means Green has to scratch seven players every night. And these guys are not just “extra” types, they are all potential NHL players.

The Comets have back-to-back games in Texas on Friday and Saturday. They also play three games in four days when they open their home schedule next week, so pay attention to how Green handles his lineups over this next stretch of games.
