Compensation in professional sports is something that is argued and debated over in fan circles all over the world. Whether a player was paid his or her deserved amount is a question that usually has had an ambiguous answer. In the National Hockey League (NHL), team captains are an integral part of the success of their team, but are they being compensated for their extra efforts? Data was collected from all NHL players that played a game between 2011 and 2016 and a quantile regression was run to assess how they are being compensated. The results show that at every salary level a team captain is compensated beyond their statistical impact.
