NHL, NHLPA resume negotiations
New York, NY, United States (4E Sports) – The NHL and NHLPA resumed negotiations toward a new Collective Bargaining Agreement Wednesday at the League office.
A session featuring NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly, NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr and Special Counsel Steve Fehr lasted approximately an hour.
There was a second and larger meeting session in the late afternoon lasted close to four hours.
Commissioner Bettman, Daly and the Fehrs had previously met Friday in Toronto.
The NHL announced last week the cancellation of the first two weeks of the regular-season schedule, a total of 82 games, due to the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement.
The NHL locked out the players Sept. 16 following the expiration of the previous CBA.
