2004: The National Hockey League locks out its players a day after the collective bargaining agreement between the NHL and the NHL Players Association expired. The lockout would stretch on for more than 10 months, canceling the entire 2004-05 NHL season and making the NHL the first North American professional sports league to lose a full season over a labor dispute. A new agreement was reached on July 13, 2005, with the lockout officially ending nine days later.
