After the bitter feud between the NHL owners and players, a new collective bargaining agreement has been ratified and the 2012-2013 season has been saved, in a shortened form.

The official schedule was released over the weekend, shortly after players ratified the new 10-year agreement between the league and players.

The shortened schedule includes 48 games between conference rivals. The season begins for the Minnesota Wild with a three-game home stand, with the Colorado Avalanche coming to town for the first game.
