1995: The NHL Players Association and team owners reach an agreement to end a lockout that had stretched on for more than three months. As a result, the league shortened the 1994-95 season length from 84 games, the length of the previous two seasons, to 48 games. A total of 468 games were lost due to the lockout, along with the NHL All-Star Game.
