Don't forget about taxes. Although each NHL season is composed of months two separate calendar years, having a salary in the United States of $850,000 we can estimate that he would have to hand over $273,149 in federal income taxes.

After paying the federal government, he would have $576,851 left over. However, he may still need to use some of that money to pay state or city taxes as well.
