New York, NY (Sports Network) - The National Hockey League announced on Thursday the cancellation of its regular-season schedule through January 14.
The latest announcement came six days after the league revealed it had filed a class action complaint in federal court, just hours after the NHL got wind that its Players' Association would ask its executive board to proceed with a vote to file a disclaimer of interest. That is a precursor to decertify the union in order to proceed with class action and antitrust lawsuits.
No further talks between factions have occurred since a second go-around with federal mediators failed last week. No further progress on creating a new Collective Bargaining Agreement has been made since both sides met in a round of intense talks in New York two weeks ago.
That brings the total number of contests lost to the lockout that started Sept. 16 to 625 -- more than one half of all games originally planned -- which included the 2013 Winter Classic and All-Star Weekend.
