PEBBLE BEACH, CALIF. - The salary cap for National Hockey League clubs is headed north.

How much north will be a topic at the board of governors meetings over the next couple of days.

With six outdoor games this season and a new, 12-year, $5.2 billion Canadian broadcast deal kicking in next year, it won’t be long before the current $64.3 million cap – negotiated as part of the new CBA last January – is left in the dust.
