NHL cancels more games

10 December 2012 22:42

The NHL has cancelled all games through December 30 as negotiations between the league and the NHL Players' Association continue.

The league annulled another 16 days of games on Monday as part of its ongoing lockout, bringing the total number of regular-season games lost to 526, or 42.8 percent of the schedule.

The total includes January's Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs and the All-Star Game in Columbus.

The cancellations are necessary due to the absence of a new collective bargaining agreement between the NHL and the NHLPA.

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league and the union had made plans to resume negotiations in the coming days.

"Trying to set up something for this week, but nothing finalised yet," he told the NHL website.

The two parties have not met since three days of negotiations in New York City last week concluded on Thursday without compromise.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, who is overseeing his third lockout, said the season could yet be wiped out.

"When it gets to the point where we can't play a season with integrity, with a representative schedule, then we'll be done," he said on Thursday.
