The NHL set escrow on player contracts at 17.2 percent for the 2021-22 season, according to The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun.

That's in line with projections for this season, which were estimated between 14-18 percent. The league set escrow, the amount that the league pulls back from player contracts to even out the split of hockey revenue, at 20 percent for the pandemic-shortened 2020-21 season.

In July, the league and the NHL Players Association agreed to a steep drop in escrow following this season. It will go down to 10 percent in 2022-23 and then six percent the following three years.
