NHL cancels games through November
(MCT) — The NHL lockout has now claimed games through the month of November.
The league on Friday canceled games through Nov. 30 as the lockout continued into its 40th day. The NHL had set a Thursday deadline to reach a deal on a new collective bargaining agreement to maintain the possibility of a full 82-game regular season. The NHL and players' union have not been meeting and Friday the league canceled the games.
"The National Hockey League deeply regrets having to take this action," deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in a statement. "By presenting a proposal to the NHLPA that contemplated a fair division of revenues and was responsive to Player concerns regarding the value of their contracts, we had hoped to be able to forge a long-term Collective Bargaining Agreement that would have preserved an 82-game Regular Season for our fans. Unfortunately, that did not occur.
