NHL Increases Salary Cap to $56.8M

MONTREAL -- The NHL's salary cap for next season will be $56.8 million, a source told ESPN.com Friday.

The figure is a mere $100,000 increase from the cap total of last season.

Numbers crunchers from the NHL and the NHL Players' Association finalized the figure for the next season Thursday in New York.

The cap has risen for a fifth consecutive season since its implementation in 2005.

The salary cap debuted at $39 million for the 2005-06 season, the first season coming out of the lockout. It rose to $44 million for 2006-07 and to $50.3 million in 2007-08.
