The salary cap for the 2019-20 NHL season could come in below the $83-million upper limit that was initially estimated.

The NHL and NHLPA are meeting Tuesday, and many teams reportedly told TSN's Bob McKenzie that they're concerned about the current forecast for the cap.

It's feared that the upper limit for next season will be less than $82 million, representing an increase of just over $2 million, according to McKenzie. The league and the union are expected to agree on a figure this week.
