How Much Does An ECHL Player Make Per Year? Average ECHL Player Salary

An East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) player is generally offered a contract based on many factors such as previous performance, position and number of games played. Their salaries are normally worked out on a weekly basis unlike the NHL players who are paid for an entire season. When the weekly earnings are calculated on yearly basis, the annual average pay of an ECHL player falls in the range of $30,000 to $35,000. This is after taking into consideration the off-season or non-playing duration during a year. ECHL teams have a salary cap of $11,200 per week for a minimum of 20 players. However, the average salary per player is $560 per week. ECHL teams also need to provide housing to their players.
