If the players who were drafted in 2012 started their NHL careers when the lockout ended in 2013 and continued to play in the league through the conclusion of last season, they would have maximized the NHL pension benefit. The top 5 picks in 2012 were Nail Yakupov, Ryan Murray, Alex Galchenyuk, Griffin Reinhart and Morgan Reilly. The age of these players is 28 years old. As we look forward to this week’s NHL Entry Draft, we also want to celebrate the players who accumulated the maximum NHL pension credits with the completion of the 2021-22 campaign. Accordingly, we summarized the defined benefit pension program’s facts and features in the link below. Good luck to the players available in this week’s draft and congratulations to those who have achieved their maximum pension!
