The 20 Highest Paid Players in the NHL

#2 (tie). Patrick Kane, Right Wing, Chicago Blackhawks, $13.8 million

Along with Toews’s contract, these two are the largest since the new CBA was ratified. Kane should be making more than Toews though to cover his growing legal costs.

#1. Shea Webber, Defenseman, Nashville Predators, $14 million

So Webber’s actual salary is $1million, but he receives a $13million signing bonus. Salary cap experts also figured out that by giving him a 14 year contract that expires when he is 40, they could minimize the salary cap hit from his contract. The longest possible contract that the current CBA allows is eight years.
