CBA Framework In Place
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.
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 Board of Governors is expected to meet later this week to conduct its ratification process.
According to multiple reports, the deal spans 10 years with an out option for either side after eight years. It also reportedly features a seven-year limit on new player contracts (extended to eight for players re-signing with their own team).
The new CBA, which still must be drafted and formally approved by both parties, replaces the agreement that expired Sept. 15.
