Ray Bourque: $20 Million
Bourque repped his native Canada in the 1998 Olympics in Nagano.
Although he was inducted into the Hall of Fame during his first year of eligibility and remains one of the only players to have his number retired by two different teams, he didn’t appear to land major endorsement deals. After more than two decades in Boston, he signed one last contract with the Avalanche for $5.5 million for a single season, according to ESPN.
