Salary Cap Outlook For Each NHL Team

NHL teams are allowed a maximum of 50 contracts. This is why not many waiver claims are made. Teams only have so many contracts and adding player off waivers can make teams hit the 50-man maximum. 

Below are the salary cap hit of each NHL teams forward group, defensemen group, and goalie tandem. Players on injury reserve are not included here. When you see Los Angles & Montreal with low goalie cap hits, it’s because Jonathan Quick and Carey Price are on IR and not included.
