1959 NHL Intra-League Draft

The 1959 NHL Intra-League Draft was held June 10. The rules were the same as before except the draft price was raised from $15,000 to $20,000, twice the original price set in 1952. Keep in mind that stars like Maurice Richard and Doug Harvey were making $25,000 per season at this time (about $200,000 in 2013 dollars, adjusted for inflation). When a team made a claim in the intra-league draft it cost them a significant amount of money.
