NHL, players' union, reach tentative deal to end lockout

Posted: Updated:

It looks NHL hockey is back.

The league and players' union agreed to a tentative labor deal.

The NHL is hoping to open training camps next week and start an abbreviated 48 game regular season schedule within the next two weeks. 

Some of the key details of the new labor agreement include:

-- 10-year deal, and each side is able to opt out after eight.

-- Free-agent contracts are limited to a maximum length of seven years, but clubs can go to eight years to re-sign their own players.

-- Players' share of hockey-related income drops from 57 percent to a 50-50 split.

-- The salary cap for the upcoming season is $70.2 million, and it will go down to $64.3 million in the 2013-14 season.
