The following is the press release from the NHL concerning the canceled games through Oct. 24. It is pretty bland. Probably because the league is leaving room for Daly to get out there and blame the NHLPA for all of this.
The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through October 24. A total of 82 regular-season games were scheduled for Oct. 11 through Oct. 24.
The cancellation was necessary because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL.
