NHL players association declines to reopen CBA @NHLdotcom

MONTREAL (AP) -The executive board of the NHL Players' Association turned down an opportunity to reopen the collective bargaining agreement with the NHL on Friday, ensuring hockey labor peace through the 2010-11 season.

The union had until May to decide, but chose to make the announcement early during NHL All-Star weekend. The players' association can extend the deal, which ended the yearlong lockout in 2005, for another season if it chooses. That determination won't have to be made until May 2011.
