After signing a contract for an undisclosed amount, he received a letter from the Minnesota North Stars' General Manager confirming that if he was to be with the team in 1974-75, he would earn $57,000 with similar bonuses. On January 5, 1974, about in the middle of the season, Prentice decided to retire. Based on the possible salary for 1974-75 and the fact that he retired halfway through the season, it is assumed that he earned about $30,000. He never played pro-hockey again except for 28 games in the USHL in 1976-77 as a player-coach.
