The NHL's salary cap, as a result of multiple factors, has had a salary cap that remained dead in the water, with some teams using an internal cap to control spending.

From 2019-2022 the Salary Cap only increased from $81.5 M recently to $83.5 M which is only within two seasons.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman confirmed in December, that the salary will increase from $83.5 M to $87.7 M in 2024-2025.
The league had an increase in revenue this season, totaling $6.2 Billion.
According to David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period, the NHL salary cap will increase again for 2025-2026 to $92 M, a 5% total increase.
Players have had to reassess their priorities with the salary cap remaining flat for the last few years. This resulted in some NHL players accepting shorter-term contracts, with less job security. With an increase of the cap and revenue, it seems likely that they'll once again look to long-term deals soon.
The 2024 Free-agent class, is a star-studded lineup of UFA's, including Steven Stamkos, Sam Reinhart, Tyler Bertuzzi, , Jake Guentzel, Jonathan Marchessault Elias Lindholm and Vladimir Tarasenko looking for new contracts come July 1st.
2025 promises to be even more exciting for free agency, which includes players like Mikko Rantanen, Sydney Crosby, and Leon Draisaitl.
The talent pool will be immense, as Mitch Marner, Aaron Ekblad, Brad Marchand, Brocker Boeser, John Tavares and Victor Hedman will also be available.
