NFL players, team owners and coaches made big money from the league’s sale last year of its television rights to ESPN.
According to Sports Business Journal, the average compensation of NHL players is $2.5 million a year.
The average of NHL team owners is $6.4 million a season.
In the NHL’s case, those figures are a combined $8.9 million a team, and the owners are collectively paid $14.7 million.
The owners of the Buffalo Sabres and Carolina Hurricanes, for example, each made $5.4 billion in total revenue last year, with $2 billion coming from television rights alone.
The New York Rangers and St. Louis Blues, the NHLs biggest franchises, made just over $1 billion in revenue last season.
It’s not just the players who make money off their sport either.
The league’s owners have also been able to put more money into the league and more teams in the league in the process.
So, in effect, they’re making millions from the sport, while the players are getting their paycheck.
In 2016, the league said that $2,979 million was paid out in player-related income taxes, and it’s not clear if the tax breaks are included in that figure.
In 2019, the NBA, NHL, and NFL will be the first professional sports leagues to share some of the revenue with their fans.
In 2020, the NCAA and the NCAAB will also share some revenue.
However, it is unclear how many teams are sharing revenue, or what the tax incentives will be for players.
The NHL and NHLB both said that it would not be an issue for the league to share revenue with its players.
They also said that the league would not have to pay taxes on player earnings.
The NHL and the NHLB have said that they expect to have revenue sharing arrangements in place by 2021, and that it is not a priority to tax the players.
“We’ve already started discussions with a number of tax advisors, including the Internal Revenue Service and other government agencies, to discuss tax-related issues related to the league,” the NHL said in a statement.
“We look forward to working with our owners and our players to make the most of this opportunity.”
