NHL Lockout Ends with Tentative Framework of an Agreement

Yesterday, NHL players and management reached a tentative framework of an agreement to end a 113-day lockout. 

The National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA) announced there are still many details that need to be ironed out before the final contract is ratified. 

Don Fehr, executive director of the NHLPA, said in the press conference:
