Highest Paid Players by Position

With the NHL expanding, contracts are growing. What was once an astronomical fee for players is quickly becoming a bargain rate for certain players. 5 Million dollars per year is an absolute steal for players of a certain caliber. John Tavares, or Max Paccioretty both should earn upwards of 7 or 8 million based off of previous years points. Their sub 6 million dollar contracts are looking extremely cost effective now. With Tavares becoming a UFA at the end of the season, we will soon find out the value of his next contract.

In this list I will be measuring the top 3 highest salaries in each position. C, LW, RW, D and Goalies will be examined. Players are sometimes listed in multiple positions so keep your pants on. I will be ranking by Cap Hit, not total contract or AAV. These totals are for the 2017-18 season, so McDavid’s monumental contract, as well as Price’s contract will not be in effect until next season. At that point I will re-release this list with the corresponding changes. Both will be the highest earners of their positions.

 

C Jonathan Toews – $10,500,000

C Anze Kopitar – $10,000,000

C Evgeni Malkin – $9,500,000

 

RW Р Patrick Kane Р$10,500,000

RW – Corey Perry – $8,625,000

RW – Jakub Voracek – $8,250,000

 

LW – Alex Oveckin – $9,540,000

LW – Jamie Benn – $9,500,000

LW – Rick Nash – $7,800,000

 

D – P.K Subban – $9,000,000

 

D – Brent Burns – $8,000,000

D – Victor Hedman – $7,875,000

 

G – Henrik Lundqvist – $8,500,000

G – Sergei Bobrovsky – $7,425,000
