NHL Owners Ratify CBA

from the CP at CBC,

NHL owners have voted in favour of ratifying the new collective bargaining agreement with their players.

A majority of owners were in support of the new deal, which the league and NHL Players' Association reached early Sunday morning after a 16-hour bargaining session.

The players aren't expected to start their own ratification vote until Friday. It will be conducted electronically over two days and needs majority support from the roughly 740 union members to pass.

If all goes to plan, the process would be completed by Saturday and training camps would open around the league on Sunday.

Interesting that they report that ‘a majority’ supported it, but don’t give vote totals or info regarding who voted for or against.  Especially since they released info that the vote to authorize a lockout was unanimous.
