The NHL Players' Association voted yesterday to trigger the 5-percent salary cap escalator for next season while also voting to extend the collective bargaining agreement through the 2011-12 season, The Post has learned.

The votes were cast by the union's 30 player reps in the second day of the Players' Association's meeting in Chicago. The cap, which was $56.8 million last season, is expected to increase by approximately $2 million for 2010-11.
