NHL ratifies new CBA

Hockey is (almost) officially back. The NHL board of governors met today to complete their review of the CBA and vote on it.

The 113-day lockout was tentatively brought to an end last week when the NHL and NHLPA finally agreed on a deal. That deal is now official with a unanimous NHL board ratification.

The NHLPA now needs to ratify the deal. They will be meeting Friday-Saturday to vote on the agreement. Camps should start on Sunday.
