Pro lacrosse fans won't be put through withdrawl after all.
The National Lacrosse League announced Wednesday it has reached an agreement on a new one-year collective bargaining agreement with the Professional Lacrosse Player's Association, which will cover the 2013 NLL season.
According to the league, the terms of the CBA were agreed to at a session in Buffalo last Friday. Both sides agreed to continue negotiations "on a long-term CBA for the 2014 season and beyond," according to a NLL statement.
The 2013 season was put into jeopardy when the league's board of governors opted out of the final two years of the prior CBA with the players' union.
The NLL also announced that the Calgary Roughnecks would play a pre-season game against the Colorado Mammoth Dec. 8 in Langley, B.C.
