After a very exhausting week in the world of hockey, we have yet come to another impasse. The NHL has officially cancelled all games through December 30th.
We are currently 86 days into this sincerely disappointing lockout. The previous set of cancellations had already claimed 422 regular season games, as well as the 2012 Winter Classic and All-Star Game. Today’s cancellations have added an additional 104 games to this ever-rising total.
This is a loss of a total of 526 games lost. This equates to 43% of the regular season, which was scheduled to begin on October 11th.
The NHL and the NHLPA have reached out to each other in an attempt to restart negotiations sometime this week; however, no meetings have been officially scheduled as of yet.
