While most fans cheered Sunday's news that the NHL lockout was set to end, many wondered how much damage the sport had sustained among its fan base.
In Voorhees, New Jersey fans told FOX 29 they were thrilled to hear that hockey was on its way back, but voiced their frustration over the long hiatus.
"I think this whole thing was just egos, like politics, and I think everybody met in the middle and got where they needed to be and hopefully we don't do this again," one fan said.
Other fans were just happy to know that at least a shortened version of the season would be played this year.

Rain moved in Saturday afternoon and the chance for it will stick around through the seven day forecast.
It becomes very unsettled across our area with clounds and showers again Sunday. The best chance for rain is in the morning and afternoon thunderstorms are possible towards our south.
Sunday is cool but we do warm up well into the 80s by Tuesday. With the warm weather comes a better chance for thunderstorms.
