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.

Voynov case leaves Kings, NHL in tough spot

Oct 21 2014 6:02pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

If the NHL waits for the legal process to play out before lifting Slava Voynov’s indefinite suspension, he will almost certainly end up serving one of the longer bans in league history. Consider: The Los Angeles Kings are scheduled to play 18 times before the defenceman is even due in court on Dec. 1 — and that could be just the beginning if domestic abuse charges are pursued against him in California. Some cases drag on for years. Absent a quick le ...
