One new thing we will see for the 2020-21 season is a 4-6 man taxi squad for NHL teams to help them avoid situations where they would be short manned due to the pandemic. The folks at CapFriendly posted this:

Most interesting to note that the Jets are required to carry three goalies which likely means Eric Comrie won’t have to worry about going on another odyssey like he did last season.
I’m of the opinion that the Jets shouldn’t keep prospects (i.e. Vesalainen, Gustafsson, etc) on the taxi squad as they will be better off playing actual games with the Moose. We spoke about this quite a bit during the tird segment of Saturday’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show which you can listen to here.
