The hockey world woke up to exciting news Sunday morning. The NHL and NHL Players Association reached a tentative agreement to play hockey this season.

If the agreement holds up, there shouldn’t be a work stoppage for at least 10 years.

There have only been 11 hockey products between In The Game, Upper Deck and Panini America so for this season. But the upcoming schedule has several products coming out within the next couple of weeks.

Collectors are happy to get new rookies into their products. The top three rookies in early 2012-13 products have been Chris Kreider, Jaden Schwartz and Sven Baertschi.

Right now, it’s time to enjoy getting hockey back. In a few days, we’ll break down what we can expect.

What player are you most looking forward to seeing this season?

In the meantime, enjoy these tweets from hockey players and fans about the lockout ending.


Upcoming products
Jan. 15 – Upper Deck SP Game-Used
Jan. 16 – Panini Titanium
Jan. 30 – Panini Limited
