Considered the main architect of the Montreal Canadiens' historic breakthrough in the 2021 playoffs, Carey Price will receive a check for $11 million before his next departure.

In fact, according to his current contract, he is due to receive a salary bonus on July 1. With his prowess in the current playoffs, no fan will resent this amount of money, which is oh so deserved in the 2021 playoffs. Even if the first two games against the Tampa Bay Lightning did not turn out well for the Montreal Canadiens. We have to admit that the goaltender has been smoking during this wild spring.
It's also the opportunity for many players who have seen their contract bought out in the past to receive a fat check, even if they are retired. Rick Dipietro still receives $1.5 million per year until 2028.
Starting with the 2022-2023 campaign, the Tricolore goaltender will be paid between $5.5 and $6.75 million on July 1st. This is the last time he will receive a check in the eight figures ($10M+). If he continues until the end of his current deal, Carey Price will have earned a career salary of nearly $135M.
In addition to the juicy check sent to Carey Price today, Geoff Molson signed a check for $1 million to Ben Chiarot and Joel Edmundson. The other members of the Sainte-Flanelle only receive a regular salary.
Carey Price was not the only one to receive a nice check today, as big stars like Artemi Panarin ($12 million), Connor McDavid ($12 million), Andrei Vasilevskiy ($10 million) and Roman Josi ($10 million) also hit the jackpot with a check for $10 million or more today.
Other talented players will receive lucrative checks. Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, Erik Karlsson, Nikita Kucherov and John Tavares... They will pocket more than 8 million dollars each...
