Does a hockey player’s path to the NHL influence their compensation?

by Wamsganz, Scott

Abstract

In this study, I ran tests to determine whether or not a player’s path to the NHL has a statistically significant impact on their salary. I did this because I wanted to test to see if there is a bias on a player’s NHL salary depending on where they played before entering the league. I tested this by devising a model using ordinary least squares (OLS) regression using a data set that I created from statistics compiled from multiple NHL databases. I found that a player’s path to the NHL was not statistically significant when determining a player’s salary and therefore failed to reject the null hypothesis.
