NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said on Wednesday that he is optimistic the league’s salary cap will rise significantly after the 2023-24 season, a year ahead of previous forecasts.

“I’ve seen some preliminary estimates recently which would make me more optimistic on the cap gong up sooner whether that’s in two seasons or three seasons, I think it’s more likely than not two seasons rather than three,” Daly said in an interview with Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek from European Media Day on Wednesday.

He called the revenue projections for the upcoming season “very solid.”

The salary cap increased by $1 million over the offseason after staying at $81.5 million for three seasons due to the economic consequences of COVID-19.
