1967-68 NHL Minimum Salary

The 1967-68 NHL minimum salary was set at $10,000.00. Also there was a significant discussion about roster sizes at the 1967 June meeting. Interesting phrasing about standby service, excluding goalies. This may go towards an explanation about the shortfall in games played - dressed but no ice time?

I can't recall exactly what Sawchuk made in 1967, but when he signed with the Kings for the 67-68 season owner Jack Kent Cooke offered him $40,000. Sawchuk was moved to tears.

Oh is that right? Havent heard this story before. Sawchuk another vastly under-paid player through his Detroit to Toronto years? I can certainly imagine so, as both organizations beyond parsimonious. Notoriously so. Really, pretty appalling. Wasnt it Bob Baun who one day in Detroits locker room while discussing salary with Gordie Howe mentioned how he was making $120K to Howes $40,000.00 and that he had some words for Gordie, that due to his conciliations over the years he'd kept salaries for all of the players down, used as an example whenever anyone had the temerity & gall to ask for raises?
