Because of the lockout, his NHL salary of $4,200,000 was prorated for the 48-game season. After the season, the Vancouver Canucks bought out the 2 years left on his contract. Per the NHL compliance buyout rule, two-thirds of the $8.4M remaining on the contract had to be paid over a period of twice the remaining length of the contract resulting in yearly payments of $1.4M for 4 years, until the end of the 2016-17 season.
