After a 113 day stalemate, the National Hockey League has ended the lockout and hockey will resume in the next few days. And celebrities like Justin, Carrie Underwood and David Boreanaz are tweeting their excitement!

Hockey has returned! After nearly 4 months of negotiations, the National Hockey League and the NHL Players Association spent 16 hours bargaining and decided to end the stalemate on Jan. 6. Hooray!  The two sides announced they had come to a preliminary settlement on a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement, and had they not reached this agreement, the NHL would have been cancelled on Jan. 11. Both fans and celebrities like Justin Bieber have taken to Twitter to express their excitement — read on for all the details!

Justin’s Reaction

Canadian native Justin could not contain his excitement, as he wrote “HOCKEY IS BACK!!” while the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper  — who Justin recently met — said “Glad to see a deal between the #NHL players and the league. Great news for hockey fans and communities across Canada.” Justin has proved his love for hockey time and time again, and he recently got a new tattoo to show his dedication to the sport!

Other Celebrities Also Tweeted About Hockey’s Triumphant Return:

Many TV stars were happy about the return of hockey, as Bones star David Boreanaz wrote “So excited that @NHL is back!,” while Go On star Matthew Perry tweeted “The NHL and Go On are back this week! All is right in the world.#GoOn.” Wizards of Waverly Place star David Henrie said “Hockey… It’s about freaking time!!!! So glad I can finally say this again, Go Kings Go! #hashtagWewantcup2.”

Columbus Blue Jackets player Jack Johnson ‏said, “We’re back! And I thought Team USA winning the gold was the best news. Can’t wait to go to Columbus and start the NHL season!” Country star Carrie Underwood, who is married to the Nashville Predators player Mike Fisher tweeted “Well, folks, hockey is back! Very bittersweet…I just lost my purse holder but gained cheering on my hot husband as he kicks butt!”

Howdy! This blog post couldn’t be written much better! Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept talking about this. I most certainly will send this post to him. Pretty sure he’s going to have a very good read.
Thanks for sharing!
