With the NHL regular season wrapping up, playoffs are finally here.

Ready to discuss which team has the best chance of winning the Stanley Cup? Or would you rather discuss how payroll works for the National Hockey League? Spoiler: NHL players make a lot of money.

But what does that look like on a single paycheck? How much does the highest paid player in the league make per game? We can tell you that there are a lot of deductions on $14 Million dollars.

The NHL may not pay their players as much as the NBA or MLB, but the average NHL hockey player still rakes in around over $2.5 million a year! That’s a lot of money that needs to make its way through payroll.

The top paid NHL players face-off in the infographic below. Take a look inside an NHL player’s paycheck, Sidney Crosby’s tax deductions and learn how the NHL salary cap works.
