Tyler Kennedy Pittsburgh Penguins 2010-2011 NHL statistics

Tyler Kennedy wore number 48 while playing center for the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2010/2011 NHL season. His salary for the time he spent on the ice that season was reportedly \$850,000. The total team salary for the Pittsburgh Penguins was reportedly \$67,737,500, so his salary represented 1.3% 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 Pittsburgh Penguins was \$1,325,000, while the average salary was \$2,605,288. He played a total of 80 games that season, with 21 goals and 24 assists - a total of 45 points. If we divide his reported salary by the number of games played, we find he earned \$10,625.00 per game played. Tyler Kennedy had a plus/minus of 1, 37 PIM (penalties in minutes), 7 PP (power play goals), 0 SH (short-handed goals), 2 GWG (game winning goals), and took 234 shots. He had a shooting percentage in the 2010/2011 season of 9.00%. 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 \$40,476 and his salary per point was \$18,889.

But then, there are taxes. Each hockey season is played during two calendar years, however, given an annual salary in the U.S. of \$850,000 we can estimate that he would have to pay \$272,784 in federal income taxes. That is about the same amount of tax as the tax paid by 33 median high school teachers, 38 median police officers, or 54 median fire fighters. After paying the IRS, he would have \$577,216 left over. However, he may still have to use some of that money to pay state or city taxes as well.
