The National Hockey League and the NHL Players’ Association reached an agreement early Sunday on the framework of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
After a long,16-plus negotiating session at the Sofitel Hotel, the sides announced an agreement in principle around 6 a.m. Saturday.
The League did not announce the start date of the season or the number of games each team will play.
The deal was announced by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr in the same hotel conference room where the negotiations were conducted.
