In March of this year, The Panini Group was granted a multi-year license by the NHL and NHLPA. Marking the first year since the lockout where another company, besides Upper Deck, have manufactured hockey cards with a NHLPA or NHL license. The league and player's association still refuse togive a license to Topps and fan-favorite In The Game. Panini has been making hockey stickers since the 80s and released an album last year. Here is a link to an article on Puck Junk. Panini's first set will be Score, which is a big deal for me because I love Topps, O-Pee-Chee, Score, and Pro Set from the very early 90s. Also, hopefully there will be more cards per pack for the same price.
