The NHL Lockout Is Over
The 113-day lockout is over. The NHL will have a shortened 20
12-13 season. The exact schedule hasn't been set yet, but most expect somewhere around 48-50 games to be played during the regular season. My assumption is schedule-makers are figuring out a way to make sure the Stanley Cup Finals don't overlap the 2013-14 season.
After many on and off negotiations featuring league leaders, owners, players, and/or federal mediators, an agreement is finally in place. TSN has some of the contractual details.
It'll be good to see top-level hockey return, and interesting to see how many fans return with it.
