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.

The NHL's shootout solution is right under its nose

Oct 30 2014 9:47am CDT | Source: SBNation

We're all sick of shootouts and the AHL has the answer we're all looking for. If there's one thing that's been a bit surprising about the start of the 2014-15 NHL season, it's the proliferation of shootouts deciding games. Thankfully for everyone, the American Hockey League has the solution we've been waiting for. This season, the AHL changed its overtime rules. Rather than playing 4-on-4 for five minutes and then going to a shootout if no one sc ...

NHL Franchises That Have Recovered from Crippling Attendance Issues

Oct 24 2014 7:30pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

By now even the most casual hockey fans have seen the pictures of a porous BB&T Center taken when the Florida Panthers took on the Ottawa Senators. The pictures show empty seats in all areas of the building, and many people took to Twitter to mock and sneer at the South Florida franchise. The lowly Panthers—a team that has only made the playoffs once in the last 13 seasons—are an easy target. For some it is easy to say that Gary Bettman made a mist ...
