It’s great news that the U.S. women’s national team and USA Hockey came together on a deal for the upcoming world championships.
Still, all we really know is that the contract lasts four years, as the two sides decided to keep the dollar figures between each other.
The Hockey News’ Ken Campbell laid out a lot of the possible numbers on his Twitter feed, giving us an idea of what reportedly sealed the deal.
First things first, Campbell reports that the deal is worth $3.7-$4 million overall.
That’s quite the impressive number on face value, but what does it mean for players over a four-year contract?
Campbell reports that earnings will range between $850K and $950K, depending upon how they perform in the tournament:
They’ll also receive the same travel and other miscellaneous amenities as the men’s team, but what about years that are more about training than competition?
Interesting stuff. Definitely check out Campbell’s feed for additional details.
