BOSTON (CBS) – The NHL lockout isn’t even officially over, but some Boston Bruins were already back on the ice on Monday morning.

A handful of Bruins gathered at BU’s Agganis Arena on Monday to get a jump on what will be a shortened 2013 season, just one day after learning the NHL and NHLPA had agreed to a tentative deal to end yet another work stoppage.

Forwards Gregory Campbell, Shawn Thornton, Brad Marchand, Tyler Seguin and Milan Lucic, defensemen Adam McQuaid and Andrew Ference, and netminder Tuukka Rask were all present for Monday’s early-morning workout.

Since the new Collective Bargaining Agreement — reportedly a 10-year deal — is still not official, Bruins head coach Claude Julien could not be part of the workouts. Former BU Terrier and NHL forward Mike Grier ran the show, with former Terriers Brandon Yip, Ryan Whitney and Jay Pandolfo also taking part in the workouts.

Players are expected to talk after their time on the ice, so stick with CBSBostonsports.com for all the updates!
