NHL Owners Ratify Labor Deal

NEW YORK (AP) - NHL owners 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 in a Manhattan hotel and voted on the agreement that was reached early Sunday on the 113th day of the NHL lockout.

Following the vote, Commissioner Gary Bettman apologized to everyone hurt by the 113-day lockout that preceded the agreement. He's presided over three lockouts in his nearly 20 years as commissioner.

Players are expected to vote Friday and Saturday.
