Kuzma also tweeted, Monday, that teams will be allowed 30 skaters and an unlimited number of goalies to join the roster for the July 10 training camps, but the number will reduce to 28 skaters and unlimited goalies once the postseason play begins on July 30.
Players on injured reserve do not count towards roster totals.
Nothing has been officially announced by the Canucks just yet. The team is slated to face the Minnesota Wild in a best-of-five Western Conference qualifying round series.
