Chart: How the NHL lockout affects the Wild

  • Updated: September 15, 2012 - 10:28 PM



• Wild GM Chuck Fletcher and coach Mike Yeo can have no contact with locked-out players

• Players can have no access to Wild facilities with one exception: Pierre-Marc Bouchard. He has not yet been cleared to play after last winter's season-ending concussion, meaning he has access to Wild doctors, treatment from trainers and the gym. If not cleared by Oct. 11, he is entitled to his $4.3 million 2012-13 salary.

• The Wild has assigned 25 players, including its top prospects and defenseman Marco Scandella, who played 63 Wild games last year, to Houston of the American Hockey League.

• Even if the lockout causes the cancellation of the 2012-13 season, a year will be burned from every player contract. Bouchard, Matt Cullen, Niklas Backstrom and Stephane Veilleux are in the final years of their contracts.

• Players begin missing paychecks Oct. 15, although every NHL player will receive 8 percent of his 2011-12 salary that date as an escrow reimbursement.

• Players will have to rent their own ice and are free to sign in European leagues. They have to purchase their own insurance, and if injured could be suspended by the Wild after the lockout.

• Players can't be traded during the lockout.


• On Monday, the Wild will announce how the lockout affects season tickets. Stakeholders will be given options to receive refunds as games are canceled or keep their money in their accounts in return for interest.

• On Monday, owner Craig Leipold will announce to the staff a transition plan, but it will not include imminent layoffs.

• As games are canceled, an arena staff of more than 500 won't be paid. That includes ushers, concession workers and security.

• The Wild can no longer ask players to appear at promotional events or market players. Example: "Becoming Wild," the team documentary that airs weekly on Fox Sports North, will cease.


• Referees and linesmen are not paid during the lockout.

• NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr have announced they will forgo their salaries during the lockout.
