IMPORTANT NOTES: Career earnings are an estimate of the NHL's highest paid players from 1990 to present. Full career earnings are included for any player who had one of the league's top 50 salaries in a given season. As a result, a player who never made the top 50 could qualify for this list but not appear. Buyouts are factored into career earnings, including 2005 and 2013 compliance buyouts. Primary sources for data from 1990 to 2003 are The Hockey News and USA Today. In some cases for salaries in the 1990s, players for Canadian teams may have salaries listed in Canadian dollars, although in most cases players were paid in U.S. dollars and are listed as such. Players included on the list may have incomplete salary histories, meaning they have higher career earnings than listed here. Salaries are not adjusted to reflect partial seasons due to the lockouts in 1994-95 and 2012-13, nor to reflect partial seasons due to minor-league assignments, meaning career earnings may be less than listed here. All performance bonuses are excluded from career earnings, while all known signing bonuses are included.
