St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Minnesota Wild will open the shortened 48-game NHL regular season at home as part of Hockey Day Minnesota, it was officially announced late Saturday night.

Minnesota will host Colorado on Jan. 19 to start the year, part of an opening three-game homestand for the Wild.

The NHL Players' Association (NHLPA) voted 667-12 to ratify the new collective bargaining agreement, a process that was finished Saturday morning. The NHL Board of Governors had already voted to ratify, with that unanimous decision coming on Wednesday.

The NHLPA and the league then had to sign a memo of understanding before any official action could be taken, and that happened shortly after 9:30 p.m. CT.
