Jacobs: Hockey is Back

BostonBruins.com -- Today, the National Hockey League's Board of Governors ratified the terms of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement with the National Hockey League Players' Association.

Owner and Governor of the Boston Bruins, Jeremy Jacobs, the Chairman of the NHL Board of Governors spoke about the ratification.

"On behalf of the National Hockey League's Board of Governors, I am pleased to report that today we unanimously voted to ratify a new Collective Bargaining Agreement with the National Hockey League Players' Association," said Jacobs to the gathered press in New York City. "Which means, to our fans all around the globe, hockey is back."

Details of the new Agreement won't be made available until the completion of the formal ratification process by the members of the NHLPA, but that process remains the lone speed bump preceding training camps to open the 2012-13 campaign.

"This great game has been gone for far too long, and for that we are truly sorry," continued Jacobs. "The Board today also expressed its appreciation for the professionalism and commitment, to our clubs and to the sport, that Commissioner Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Daly displayed throughout this difficult period.

"Gary, Bill and their staff worked tirelessly from long before the lockout began in an effort to reach a constructive conclusion.

"Gary and Bill have the complete and unconditional support of the Board – and our gratitude."

Jacobs also expressed thanks to the NHL's players.

"As our League moves toward what we know will be a period of growth for the sport, and a time of great excitement and entertainment for our fans, I would add the appreciation of the Board for the dedication the players showed during the negotiating process – and for their role in securing an agreement that will move the National Hockey League forward in the years ahead," said Jacobs. "There’s no doubt we all love this game.

"Together our collective future is extremely bright.

"Our only interest now is to look ahead and to focus on what this great game can provide to the best sports fans in the world," he said.
