NHL Cancels More Games

By on December 10, 2012

The National Hockey League has announced the cancellation of all games through December 30 Monday afternoon.

In a statement the league said that “the cancellations are necessary due to the absence of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL.”

The NHL also announced that “a total of 526 regular-season games-42.8 percent of the season-were scheduled for October 11 through December 30.”

The lockout is currently in it’s 86th day, and no resolution appears in sight after the previous NHLPA proposal on December 6 was quickly shot down by the league.

As of now, there is nothing scheduled for the continuation of negotiations.
