Read: Firing A Player Who Gets Injured During The Lockout

At TSN, Eric Macramalla writes about what would happen to a players contract if he were to suffer an injury during the lockout.

He writes that if a player suffers an injury that would be deemed career ending, the team can use a clause in the standard player contract to terminate the contract and wouldn’t have to pay what is remaining.

In the case of a player like Carl Hagelin, who is injured with a shoulder issue, if the lockout were to end and Hagelin was injured and unable to play, the Rangers could suspend him without pay.

In regards to insurance, Macramalla writes that it can cost a player between $10,000 and $25,000 per $1 million to insure a contract.
