2014 NHL Holiday Roster Freeze

The National Hockey League will be enacting a roster freeze for the holiday season, which will take place between 11:59 p.m. on December 19 and 12:01 a.m. on December 28. There will be no trades occurring within this time period. Loans are also prohibited during this time period. The waiver situation gets a little bit more murky however. According to the Carolina Hurricanes website, players can be claimed after the freeze, if they were put on waivers prior to the beginning of the freeze. A player on emergency recall can also be returned to the AHL during the freeze period. For more detail, see the information on the Hurricanes' website.
