The NHL salary cap will be between $79.5 and $80 million next season, though nothing is firm yet, commissioner Gary Bettman told reporters Wednesday, per Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

The number still needs to be finalized with the NHLPA before it can be made official, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

If the cap winds up being on the larger end of that spectrum, it would mark a $5-million increase from last season's $75-million salary cap.
