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.

Todd Bertuzzi, Steve Moore might not have a settlement after all

Aug 20 2014 12:53pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Todd Bertuzzi's lawyers said Monday that they had reached a settlement with Steve Moore. But Moore's brother says there's no deal. On Tuesday, reports swarmed of a settlement between Steve Moore and Todd Bertuzzi --  one more than a decade in the making. A day later, it appears that there's no settlement after all. Not yet at least. It may have been a premature announcement and they still might be close on a deal, but it could be something more sinister: an at ...
