NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has previously said that a 2013 regular season at least 48 games in length would have to begin Jan. 19. The NHL has already cancelled games from the original 2012-13 season through Jan. 14.

Not Jan 11 per se but common sense would dictate that 1 week is necessary to get back from Europe and practice with teammates.
