Report – NHL Will Raise Salary Cap to $75 Million

The NHL salary cap will be set at $75 million next season, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman. 

It’s an increase of $2 million from last season’s cap, which was set at $73 million (a 2.67% increase). The cap floor next season has been set at $55.4 million.

The increase is welcomed news for the Capitals as they head into summer trying to sign several key free agents. The Capitals are currently $24,811,538 under the new salary cap ceiling.
