Russians in the NHL (National Hockey League): Are They Getting Paid a Premium?

by Gerdes, Lucas

Abstract

This paper examines if the Russians already in the NHL (National Hockey League) are being paid a premium due to the competition for their services from the KHL (Kontinental Hockey League). This paper assesses the determinants of player salaries in the NHL. Data was collected over the 2011-2012 season to the 2015-2016 season in the NHL. I find that player production and Russian nationality are significant determinants of NHL player salaries.
