The total team salary for the Los Angeles Kings was reportedly $51,645,750, so his salary represented 6.8% of that total team payroll. We can compare his salary to the other players on his team.

Willie Mitchell had a plus/minus of 4, 21 PIM (penalties in minutes), 0 PP (power play goals), 1 SH (short-handed goals), 1 GWG (game winning goals), and took 59 shots. He had a shooting percentage in the 2010/2011 season of 8.50%.

But then, there are taxes. Each hockey season is played during two calendar years, however, given an annual salary in the U.S. of $3,500,000 we can estimate that he would have to pay $1,200,284 in federal income taxes. That is about the same amount of tax as the tax paid by 147 median high school teachers, 168 median police officers, or 238 median fire fighters. After paying the IRS, he would have $2,299,716 left over. However, he may still have to use some of that money to pay state or city taxes as well.
