  • They're getting paid by their clubs per their CBA.  Their union provides financial payments to retired players via pensions/retirement, or during strikes/lockouts as players aren't paid by their clubs.  

    FWIW player salaries are paid out over the regular season only.  Teams that make the playoffs do earn playoff share pool money (teams that advance earn more money; the players will vote shares on this pool after they're done with the playoffs- same thing happens in baseball and basketball).

    Yes.

    I am a sports fan who is a fan of 2 sports radio shows. They talk about sports topics and they take phone calls from passionate sports fans. If you are interested to call their sports radio shows than feel free. Call their morning show, and the afternoon show at 704-332-0173. It is Monday to Friday, 7am ET to 9:55am ET. Also, 3pm ET to 6:55pm ET. They would talk about any sports topics of your choice, and also if you have questions in sports or anything in general, feel free to call them.

    You could call in another sports radio show Monday to Friday at 12pm ET to 12:55pm ET, 502-571-1080. They would talk about any sports topics of your choice, and also if you have questions in sports or anything in general, feel free to call them.

    National Hockey League players will receive their final three scheduled paychecks, despite the season being suspended because of the coronavirus outbreak, deputy commissioner Bill Daly told ESPN on Friday.

    The players are scheduled to receive three more payments before the planned April 4 end of the regular season. The first paycheck, which they received Friday, was for services rendered from Feb. 24 to March 5. The second pay period was March 6 through March 23. The other paycheck covers the rest of the regular season.

    This wasn't guaranteed for the players when the season was officially put on hold this week. The collective bargaining agreement gives NHL owners the ability to negotiate a different salary level for players in the event that the league "suspends, ceases or reduces operations" in its season due to "a state of war or other cause beyond the control of the League or of the Club."
