Let's say someone signs a contract....

...and at one point of the contract, the salary Player A signed for is under the new minimum salary, due to a raised salary cap. What happens?

For those that don't understand, lets make up an example. Maxwell Dorian ( to those that understand the refernce) signs a contract - 0.75million cap hit per year, for 7 years. During year 6, the NHL minimum player salary gets bumped up to .8million. What happens to Maxwell's contract?

This is all hypothetical, as I don't ever expect this to happen.

His salary would be bumped to the new minimum. This actually happened the other way around..... someone was making more than the max and they bumped it down (WAnt to say it was Jagr)

Under the current CBA the upper and lower limits are based on the year the deal is signed. So unless the CBA changes the salary remains.

Cap hit would remain the same.

We saw this not too long ago when the league minimum went up from 500K to 550K.

As long as the minimum was applicable when the contract was signed it's grandfathered past any future minimums.
