Can anyone comment on how an NHL player's pay is actually calculated? Curious about it for the guys moving back and forth between the AHL. So Henrique for example has an AHL salary of $65k, but an NHL salary of $612,500. Obviously a huge difference. So did he get paid his NHL salary based on playing 3 out of 82 games, or is it based on the number of days up in the NHL. If it is number of days, when does the season run for pay purposes?
Finally, is the pay only paid out over the regular season? What happens during playoff time.
