Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the NHL played a 56-game season instead of 82. Base salaries were not pro-rated but 10% of $6,000,000 was deferred and payable in three yearly payments, starting in October 2022, without interests. Escrow for the season was increased to 20% and performance bonuses were pro-rated (amounts and targets to reach).
2021-22 $512,195 $512,195 1179 -$5,487,805 -91%
Had a contract for $6M as coach of the Florida Panthers. On October 28, 2021, 7 games into the season, he resigned from his job as head coach of the Panthers in the wake of the independent investigation into the Chicago Blackhawks for allegations by former player Kyle Beach of sexual assault by then-video coach Brad Aldrich in 2010, while he was coach of the team. As he officially resigned, he technically forwent his salary for the rest of the season (earning a pro-rated $512,195 in 2021-22) and for the next 2 seasons on his contract. However, there is the possibility that he was forced to quit with some type of an agreement for a severance payment or to be paid for the remaining of his contract ending at the end of 2023-24 season.
