— The NHL and the players’ association reached a tentative agreement early Sunday to end a nearly four-month-old lockout that threatened to wipe out the season.

A marathon negotiating session that lasted more than 16 hours, stretching from early Saturday afternoon until just before 6 a.m. EST Sunday morning produced a 10-year deal that still must be ratified by the players.
