You can make a nice living as a hockey player.

That’s especially true for NHL players, including members of the Calgary Flames. More than half the players on the Flames roster will earn $3 million this season, with the highest paid players – Johnny Gaudreau, Mark Giordano, and Sean Monahan – approaching $7 million per season.

The team’s lowest-paid player, Anthony Peluso, will earn $650,000. Not bad.
