Can an NHL team exceed the salary cap? Performance bonuses count towards the cap, although there is a percentage that a team is allowed to go over the cap in order to pay bonuses. A team must still factor in possible bonus payments, however, which could go over that percentage.
How many NHL teams are over salary cap? That’s because 14 teams exceeded the salary cap this season, and when factoring in for performance bonuses, the extra spillage (or “overage”) will be applied to the 2022-23 season as a carryover.
