The NHL's labor dispute has been resolved. But before the Anaheim Ducks can skate again, the Honda Center needs to hire more workers to handle game day duties.

The Honda Center in Anaheim is getting ready for the Anaheim Ducks to return to the ice.

Honda Center President Tim Ryan said they’re in the process of hiring employees to fill 150 part-time positions.

“It ranges from food and beverage positions in restaurants, concession stands, ushering, parking attendants, box office ticket sales and pretty much across the board," Ryan said. "Every night that we have a game we roughly use a thousand individuals."

Ryan said they've already begun training about 50 employees to work Ducks games.

NHL players are voting Friday and Saturday on whether to approve a new contract after a league-wide lockout. If an agreement is reached this weekend, the NHL will start a short 48-game season on Jan. 19.
