You’ve probably heard hockey players say something like “we can’t afford to take shifts.”

Well, technically some of these players are lying through their teeth.

Recent data collected by onlinebetting.com shows that some NHL players can afford to take shifts. In fact, based on those jaw-dropping payouts, they could retire entire games and keep laughing.

It’s well known that most professional athletes make millions every year, but things get a little silly when you start breaking down the financial numbers.

The most expensive NHL player in terms of earnings per minute?

We apologize, but this video failed to load.

According to the data, Tyler Seguin of the Dallas Stars, from Brampton, is the wealthiest of them all, earning $175,000 per minute for the 51 minutes he played last season.

The center, who joined the Stars in 2013, signed an eight-year, $78.8 million contract in 2018. In the playoffs two years later, he tore his acetabular labrum and missed the majority of the following season.

Loui Eriksson of the Arizona Coyotes was second per minute, playing 67 minutes last season and scoring $89,600 for every 60 seconds on the ice.

The towering Zdeno Chara of the New York Islanders made the least money per minute, but I guess most of us would be fine with taking $789 per minute.
