PA voting window ends; sides await results
The National Hockey League Players' Association has finished voting on ratification of the Collective Bargaining Agreement with the National Hockey League, but has yet to announce the results.

The National Hockey League Players' Association has finished voting on ratification of the Collective Bargaining Agreement with the National Hockey League, but has yet to announce the results.

"Per agreement with the NHL, we will announce results of player vote later today," the Union said through its Twitter account. "Discussions to finalize the MOU [Memorandum of Understanding] continue this morning."

Both sides have to sign a Memorandum of Understanding for the mechanics of the provisions of the ratified CBA to kick in and for the 2012-13 season to begin.

If the MOU is signed by both sides Saturday, teams could open training camps Sunday, with the regular season reportedly to begin Jan. 19.

The NHL Board of Governors voted unanimously Wednesday to ratify the new 10-year CBA.
