NHL Lockout is Over; Time for Kings to Defend Title


I'm just happy the Kings can finally raise that Stanley Cup Banner at Staples Center and defend their championship.

The schedule and ticket information will be released later this week.
NEW YORK -- The National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association reached agreement on the framework of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement early Sunday morning. 
After a marathon 16-plus hour negotiating session at the Sofitel Hotel that began Saturday afternoon, the sides announced an agreement in principle shortly after 6 a.m. Sunday. 
The League did not announce the start date of the season or the number of games each team will play. Those details will be announced soon. 
The deal, agreed to at approximately 4:40 a.m., was announced jointly by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr in the same hotel conference room where the negotiations were conducted with the assistance of Scot Beckenbaugh, Deputy Director for Mediation Services for the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service.
