NHL outdoor games for 2013-14 worth $180 million

The SportsXchange

The six planned outdoor NHL games for the 2013-14 season are valued at $30 million apiece and the extra $180 million generated will be split evenly between the league and the players, CBC reported Monday.

Since the salary cap is scheduled to decrease next season, players are concerned about the NHL's escrow. However, the outdoor games are part of a three-year strategy that will allow the league to make an additional $1 billion.

The plan includes gaining revenue from a World Cup, sponsorship, TV revenue and merchandise.

CSN Philly, however, reported that the plan is a "quick fix" to make up for revenue shortages caused by the 2012-13 lockout.
