Connor Brown Bonuses

Asked Aug 22, 2023 by Donnie

With Connor Brown being eligible signing a bonus laden contract due to being on injured for 100+ days and playing 400+ games, can the bonuses be for achieving goals/assists/points thresholds? Or can the bonuses only be games played thresholds since he’s only eligible to sign this type of contract because of the amount of games he’s missed?

For players that are eligible for performance bonuses due to being injured or 35+, there are no restrictions on the bonus thresholds. In your example, Connor Brown's bonuses could definitely have included items like goals/points, but also things like shots, hits, minutes, as well team items like standings and playoff success.
