  • Three Toronto Maple Leafs are in the top 10.
  • Carey Price is the only goaltender on the list.

Most of the NHL’s highest earners are franchise players who consistently register show-stopping offensive numbers.

In terms of NHL betting, prop bets have become increasingly popular in recent years. 

The top-10 NHL earners usually provide excellent subjects for prop bets, as they routinely sit atop the league’s scoring chart. 

Unsurprisingly, these highly paid superstars earn bucket-loads more than the average yearly NHL salary and garbage trucks more than NHL referees, who are still compensated handsomely.
