Entry Level Salaries while in Junior

Do players who sign their Entry Level Deals and then play in Junior receive their salary while playing in Junior?


Jul 20, 2022

Players who have signed Entry Level Deals and are sent back to Junior do not receive the NHL or Minors Salary on their contract. They do however receive their signing bonus, and some contracts pay a specific junior salary of $10,500.
