The teams with a net worth of $1 billion or more are listed second, followed by the teams with net worths of less than $1.5 billion.
The new NHL expansion team Vegas Golden Knights will receive a $1 million bonus on Jan. 1 after the team finishes with 100 points, up from the 99 the team has already reached.
