REPORT: NHL announces how much the Salary cap will rise!
Despite the NHL setting new records in profits each year and even adding advertisements to jerseys and helmets, they still have not raised the cap since we entered the pandemic.
It sounds like now though that they are ready to make a jump in the salary cap. According to NHL Insider Elliotte Friedman, the league told teams of their expectations of the rise in cap space the next few seasons:
NEWS: The NHL has reportedly given guidance to teams on where the salary cap could be going for the next 3 seasons per @FriedgeHNIC.

This is some great news for teams looking to really make a push by the 2025 season, but the large jump may not come soon enough for some teams currently like the Tampa Bay Lightning. But something is better than nothing!
