Gary Bettman predicts NHL salary cap to rise just $1 million this offseason, predicts larger increase in future
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly held their annual pre-Stanley Cup press conference on Saturday. One of the major topics the two men were asked to discuss is the state of the league’s salary cap.
Bettman shot down any sort of idea that the cap would be increasing for the 2023-24 season more than the $1 million that was projected at the general manager meetings last March. That comes despite reports that the NHLPA may be able to negotiate for more room if they agreed to an expanded 84-game schedule.
