Blast from the Past

06 October 2014 - 11:04 PM

So I was going through a bunch of my Dad's old things and stumbled upon one of his NHL contracts from the Red Wings lying in between the pages of an old program.


I've never seen an NHL contract before (let alone from the 70s) and thought it was interesting and that I would share for others interested as well.


The salary and bonuses give an interesting perspective in comparison to today.  The average salary (according to the HHOF) in 1970 was $18,000.

Teams to be compensated for losing personnel to other teams

26 June 2014 - 08:26 PM

Today, NHL also approved compensation for a team losing someone hired to be head coach, GM or President/Hockey Ops with another club.
Generally, we're talking a third-round draft pick, and the club doing the hiring will have a window of three years to give it up.

Great news for us.
