The NHL  lockout officially ended on Saturday night, with the league and NHLPA signing a memorandum of understanding for the new collective bargaining agreement. The lockout lasted 119 days, though the sides agreed to a new CBA last Sunday, the 113th day of the work stoppage.
The memorandum of understanding essentially seals the agreement between the NHL  and NHLPA while the CBA is finalized, allowing the league to proceed with the season without either side changing language in the deal.
Teams are now free to begin training camps, with the season set to begin on Jan. 19.
