The National Hockey League is a step closer to having a different look next season.
NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr announced in a press release Thursday the players' union wants to go forward with the league's realignment plan for the 2013-14 campaign.
"After discussions with the executive board, the NHLPA has given consent to realignment, to be re-evaluated following the 2014-15 season," Fehr said in a statement.
The next step will be approval from the NHL's Board of Governors. NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly confirmed as much in a release.
