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.

5 Players the Montreal Canadiens Would Make Available in an NHL Expansion Draft

Sep 22 2014 8:49am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Over the summer, there were reports—such as this one by the CBC—that the NHL is considering expansion in the very near future. Toronto, Seattle, Las Vegas and Quebec City have been named as the most likely destinations for new teams.  The league, of course, denied these claims, with Gary Bettman calling the reports a "complete fabrication" in an article published on ESPN.com.  Regardless of whether the talk of expansion is true, it still brings up an interesting topic of discussion: t ...

In this edition of Lost Franchises, we take a look at the Oakland Seals, the team that was responsible for Guy Lafleur ending up in Montreal. Long before Gary Bettman spent the 1990s and early 2000s spreading hockey to every corner of the United States, the NHL was interested in trying to break into new markets and expand its reach as much as possible. Prior to the 1967-68 season, the league underwent the singl ...
