One of the more controversial aspects of the NHL has always been the league's hard salary cap since it was implemented. Many fans have not been a fan of the rule, especially in recent years given the limitations that Covid has brought upon the league.

Salary Cap To Increase By Just Over Four Million Dollars

Today NHL insider Elliotte Friedman reported that the salary cap is expected to be 87.675 million dollars.

The increase would be just over four million dollars more than the current ceiling of 83.5 million dollars. The league has consistently projected the cap to go up by 4 million dollars next season. Another insider in Pierre Lebrun corroborated the news shared by Friedman.

The NHL updated governors today on the latest revenue projections for the season and as expected, the league told owners the salary cap for next season is projected to be around $87.7 million

This will be the first time the league has seen such a large increase in the cap since before covid shut the league down temporarily.
