Hmm yeah that sounds right.
That might actually be a real problem - we may not even be able to use that emergency call up for a short term D injury if spezza is sitting there in the press box.
That’s a question I have, though.
Are we only limited to one “emergency recall”? And does position factor in?
Like, if we had Spezza sitting in the press box and one of the goalies couldn’t dress for a game, presumably we’d be able to emergency recall a goalie instead of putting Spezza in goalie gear.
So is it the same thing for D? If you have fewer than six healthy defenseman on the roster, would they let you emergency recall a D even if you have an extra forward sitting in the press box?
