Best Answer

NHL players get paid for the whole season, but not the playoffs. There is often team bonuses for the players to split in the playoffs.

Players get paid every 2 weeks, just like most common jobs, and their paychecks are calculated by their salary divided by the amount of 2 week periods in the season (presumably from training camp until the end of the regular season).

Yes, the Hamilton Tigers (1920 - 1925) were the relocated Quebec Bulldogs, a charter member of the NHL.
