Hockey fans - and businesses that cater to those fans - are rejoicing, now that a tentative agreement has been reached to end the 113-day player lockout. They're planning on a 48-50 game season to start in about a week.
The NHL cancelled the first 2 weeks of the regular season today due to the continued lockout. Games are now cancelled through October 24. The Wild were set to start on the regular season on October 13. The entire preseason has already by cancelled by the NHL. Talks are ongoing to reach a new collective bargaining agreement but not deal appears to be imminent.
The Minnesota Wild have offered 10% interest on the dollar value of the tickets to season ticket holders if they credit those games lost due to the lockout. The credit can be applied toward future games or subsequent season renewels. Credit will be issued when a new collective bargaining agreement is reached between the players and owners.
The federal judge who stopped the NFL lockout will take at least another day to consider whether she should put her order on hold. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson has given the players until 9 a.m. Central time Wednesday to reply to the league's expedited motion for a stay.
