PWHL goaltenders surprising salary gets revealed

The Professional Women's Hockey League's goaltenders' salary has been revealed in a recent podcast episode.

The PWHL have almost completed the first season of their short history, and as you can guess, unfortunately, players don't get paid as much has NHLers.

PWHL goaltenders make something between $60k and $100k a year

In a recent podcast episode hosted by Quebec reporters Max Truman and Jean Trudel, we learned that the goaltenders make more than 50-60k a year, but less than 100k, which is below what the Montreal Canadiens' player Cole Caufield earns for an advertisement.

"In your opinion, how much does a starting goaltender in the PWHL make?

[His colleague, Maxime Truman, answered that he believed the figure was around $50,000 to $60,000 per year]

It's a bit more! It's below Cole Caufield's salary for an advertisement ($100,000), but it's a bit more than that." - Jean Trudel

It can be disheartening to see that players in the PWHL make significantly less money than NHL players. However, League's revenues aren't the same.

The PWHL is only in the first season of their history, whereas the NHL is at its 107th.

However, there's a lot of hope to see some changes soon. The League has taken the hockey world by storm, and with time, managers should be able to give better salaries to their players.

Notably, Montreal announced a game at the Bell Center a few weeks ago, which was sold out in a matter of minutes.
