Because of the lockout, his NHL salary of $4,250,000 was prorated for the 48-game season. After the season, the Chicago Blackhawks bought out the year left on his contract. Per the NHL compliance buyout rule, two-thirds of the $4.25M remaining on the contract had to be paid over a period of twice the remaining length of the contract resulting in yearly payments of $1,416,667 for 2 years, until the end of the 2014-15 season.
