Our goal at NHL Numbers is simple, to cover the NHL in the most informative and digestible way possible. Not only do we provide up-to-date salary cap information for all 31 NHL teams, we also provide insight and analysis regarding your favourite team’s moves and what it means to their cap moving forward. By reading our NHL content, you should leave the site with a better understanding of why moves were made, but also what they mean in relation to the salary cap.
