1992 NHL Players Strike
The first league-wide strike to hit the National Hockey League came during the 1992 season. After trying in vain to get a new collective bargaining agreement, on April 1 the NHL Players’ Association decided to walk out on the job. Fortunately for fans, the strike lasted just 10 days and ended with an agreement that would extend the season (so not games were actually lost). However, very little was actually accomplished by the strike, which meant that the unresolved issues would have to be dealt with at a later date.
