NEW YORK — NHL owners have ratified the tentative labor deal. All that now remains is player approval to finally start the hockey season.


The league's board of governors met Wednesday in a Manhattan hotel and voted on the agreement that was reached early Sunday on the 113th day of the NHL lockout.


Players are expected to vote Friday and Saturday. If two-thirds of the more than 700 members agree to the terms, training camps can open Sunday. An expected 48-game season can then begin Jan. 19.


The NHL has yet to release a new schedule. The regular season was supposed to begin Oct. 11, but the lockout wrecked those plans after it took effect Sept. 16.


The outdoor Winter Classic and the All-Star game won't be played this season.
