    When NHL players get paid, how do they get paid? Obviously they get a paycheck, but its every week right? And do they only get paid during the regular season, or is their salary distributed over the whole year so they get an income during the offseason? I think I remember reading that they do not get paid during the playoffs, is this correct?

    I'm pretty sure it's outlined in the Standard Player Contract portion of the CBA. My Adobe's acting funky just now, but from memory, I believe they're paid the 15th and 30th of each month in the regular season.
