Chris Johnston: Escrow set at 17.2% of player salaries

This is quite the chunk of change:

NHL players are expected to see 17.2% deducted from their paycheques for escrow this season. That number was based off of last year’s hockey-related revenue.

The escrow cap drops to 10% next season.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) October 12, 2021

The escrow for this season was based on a formula; most estimates were 17.5%-18% so it came in a bit lower at 17.2% per @reporterchris

The escrow % the next 4 years is fixed & set:

21-22: 10%
22-23: 6%
23-24: 6%
24-25: 6% – End of current CBA
25-26: If CBA auto-extended, max 9%— PuckPedia (@PuckPedia) October 12, 2021
