Salary in the NHL is paid on a daily scale. Last year there were 185 days in the season. So let's just assume that will be a similar number this year.
Therefore, Faksa's daily rate would be $4,500 (1/185 of $832,500).
The regular season starts on October 11th. The Stars play their 9th game of the season on October 30th. If they assigned him to the OHL the next day, he'd earn 20 days or $90,000. He would have already received his signing bonus of $92,500 as well. If Dallas wanted they could have also written in a games played bonus for him to earn $0 to $307,500 as well.
He'd earn anywhere from $182,500 to $490,000 for just under a month in the NHL.
