I believe the players get bonuses that are negotiated in their contracts, which is usually a small percentage of what they earn during the regular season, and also they get money to share amongst the team from the NHL and not the owners, which are small, set amounts:

All teams losing in the first round receive $50,000 to be split among the players

All teams losing in the 2nd round receive $100,000 to be split among the players

Both teams losing in the 3rd round receive $200,000 to be split among the players

The loser of the Stanley Cup Final receives $500,000 to be split among the players

The winner of the Stanley Cup receives $1,000,000 to be split among the players.
