Random Question re: Trades

This may be a stupid question, but here goes...

Can a player who gets traded during the season actually play more than the total number of games in a season? That is, if a player this year goes from one team after having played 36 games to a team that has played only 34 games and then proceeds to play the remainder of the season - can that player feasibly play 50 games in the regular season? Or do they have to sit two somewhere? Will they get paid for the extra 2 if not?

Yes it is possible and has happened in the pass. I am not sure how it works with pay though.

There's a couple players who have done so. I think Joe Thornton played 83 the season he was traded.

Yep----they can play more than the 82 games.

They may have clauses in his contract that make it a per game rate for salary so they would get two extra game paychecks if they play 84 games.

Back when the season was 84 games in length, two players actually managed to play 86 games due to being traded: Bob Kudelski (93-94) and Jimmy Carson (92-93).

Link.
