The collective bargaining agreement between the NHL and NHLPA is slated to expire on September 15, 2012. The league and players’ association have until then to negotiate the details on a new agreement, or else the possibility exists that the 2012-13 season will not begin on time. How are things looking so far?

Jason Strudwick made his NHL debut March 30, 1996. He hit the scoreboard in a big way--a hockey stick!--as the refs flagged him for his first 7 minutes of NHL pims.
