In the final minutes, PuckPedia reported important news stating that the Montreal Canadiens and their general manager Kent Hughes will receive a penalty from the National Hockey League for exceeding the performance bonus limit of their players during the 2022-2023 season.

This violation will result in a $1.17 million reduction in the Canadiens' salary cap for the start of the 2023-2024 season, putting them at $81.33 million, which is $1.17 million less than the usual limit of $82.5 million.

Players such as Sean Farrell, Cole Caufield, Juraj Slafkovsky, Justin Barron, Kaiden Guhle, and Jordan Harris have reached the performance bonus limit this season.

In comparison, the Boston Bruins will have a $4.5 million reduction in their salary cap for the start of next season. It is important to keep this in mind as it could limit the options of Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton. Ouch.
