NHL commissioner Gary Bettman made around $8.3 million in 2012, per the Sports Business Journal.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman's salary in 2012 was $8.3 million. 

This is the finding revealed by Christopher Botta of Sports Business Journal, which cites NHL's tax filing as reference. The figure is based on the 2011-12 NHL season, the first full one before the lockout-shortened campaign in 2013. 

The salary of $8.3 million represents "salary and benefits for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012," per Botta. According to him, Bettman made $7.98 million in 2010-11.  The commissioner's latest earnings are a far cry from what he made in 2004-05, which was only $3.7 million. 

Here's how Botta broke down Bettman's 2011-12 salary even further:

"Bettman's base salary for the 2011-12 season was $6,395,521. Payment defined as other compensation was $1,816,628. He also received $65,795 in deferred compensation and $28,800 in benefits." 

As points of comparison, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell earns around $30 million while MLB commissioner Bud Selig takes home more than $20 million. NBA commissioner David Stern's earnings have never been revealed to the public, per Botta. 

ESPN's Scott Burnside reports revenues in the 2011-12 season surpassed the $3 billion mark, with the average player salary hovering around the $2.4 million range. 

Luke Fox of Sports Net Canada points out Bettman's salary would place him fifth in terms of salary cap hits if he were an active NHL player. Alex Ovechkin tops his list with $9.538, 462.

He is followed by Evgeni Malkin ($8,700,000), Sidney Crosby ($8,700,000) and Eric Staal ($8,250,000). 

2013 marks Bettman's 20th year in office as NHL commissioner, the league's first.

Sep 28 2014 11:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

In a year where quality centres are dropping like flies in the Eastern Conference, one team has a perfectly healthy, perfectly high-end pivot sitting out of training camp thanks to a contract dispute. It’s a squabble that looks set to have a massive impact on the playoff picture out East, both in terms of what it means on the ice for the Columbus Blue Jackets and what it could do the NHL’s trade market at centre. The most obvious impact is ...
