The NHL's Board of Governors has been informed that the 2015-16 salary cap will fall just short of the previous $73-million estimate, according to multiple reports.  

Owners have been assured the figure will settle above the $72-million mark if the Canadian dollar continues to hover around 80 cents.

There was concern the floundering loonie would have a more significant impact on the league's revenue, but owners will still be afforded roughly $3 million of added cash to tinker with next season.
