Best player in the AHL.
I think the maximum a player can make is $106,000 in the AHL. Those numbers above would be his NHL salary.

If a player is on an NHL 1 way contrat then he'll still make the NHL money in the AHL. The max an AHL contract can be for is just over 100K somewhere. Doesn't really make sense from an AHL persepctive. So Aucoin will be getting around 2 million to play for Hershey for four years.
