Teams have until Monday to set their rosters, as the NHL is set to move into Phase Three of its season restart plan. That phase will allow teams to officially begin training camp, with the league’s season set to resume on Aug. 1.

Each team is allowed to carry up to 30 skaters on their summer camp roster, along with an unlimited number of goaltenders.

The Blackhawks are one of a handful of NHL teams that have not announced their camp roster.
