11. Sergei Gonchar: $70,450,000
Nice and steady describes Sergei Gonchar’s earnings throughout his 19 year career. Despite bouncing around a couple of teams throughout his career, Gonchar’s salary demands have stayed the same, no matter where he goes. Since the post-lockout era in the NHL, the 40 year old player has made an average of $5 million every single season. Sergei is currently in his final year of his 2-year, 10 million dollar deal, now with the Montreal Canadians. This may be Gonchar’s final season as an NHL player, but kudos to Gonchar for cashing in quite nicely and consistently throughout his rather fruitful career.
