There isn't a whole lot of endorsement money around either as they wear helmets, and few close-ups of them, so it'* unlikely that anyone other than a diehard fan would ever recognize a player away from the ice.
Also, Keep in mind that the hockey season is something around 9 months, and players play offense and defense(except goaltenders) as it is so fast paced.
But yeah, more than most of us will make in a lifetime.
