David Desharnais Montreal Canadiens 2010-2011 NHL statistics


Playing center and wearing number 58, David Desharnais played for the Montreal Canadiens during the 2010/2011 NHL season. He earned a salary, reportedly, of $550,000. The total team salary for the Montreal Canadiens was reportedly $63,245,833, so his salary represented 0.9% of that total team payroll. We can compare his salary to the other players on his team. The median salary for a player on the Montreal Canadiens was $1,425,000, while the average salary was $2,432,532. He played a total of 43 games that season, with 8 goals and 14 assists - a total of 22 points. If we divide his reported salary by the number of games played, we find he earned $12,790.70 per game played. David Desharnais had a plus/minus of -3, 12 PIM (penalties in minutes), 4 PP (power play goals), 0 SH (short-handed goals), 0 GWG (game winning goals), and took 55 shots. He had a shooting percentage in the 2010/2011 season of 14.50%. We can divide his salary by the number of goals scored, as well as by the number of points (goals plus assists), if we want to try to evaluate his performance strictly on offense. His salary per goal scored was $68,750 and his salary per point was $25,000.

But then, there are taxes. Each hockey season is played during two calendar years, however, given an annual salary in the U.S. of $550,000 we can estimate that he would have to pay $167,784 in federal income taxes. That is about the same amount of tax as the tax paid by 21 median high school teachers, 23 median police officers, or 33 median fire fighters. After paying the IRS, he would have $382,216 left over. However, he may still have to use some of that money to pay state or city taxes as well.
