The 25 highest-paid players in the NHL

Business Insider Logo By Cork Gaines of Business Insider | Slide 1 of 26:  The 25 highest-paid players in the NHL

The NHL is still in a bit of a transition when it comes to how much money their top players are making.

Prior to the new collective bargaining agreement (CBA), teams took advantage of a loophole that allowed players to be paid more than they normally would under the salary cap. That loophole led to some skewed salaries and has since been corrected.

Still, several of the NHL's highest-paid players are playing on deals made under the old rules.

This year's list of the NHL's highest-paid players includes 11 centers, eight wingers, five defensemen, and just one goaltender.

Here are the 25 players who will make at least $8.5 million this season, with data provided by Spotrac.
