Due to on going labor negotiations, blah blah blah. The NHL has cancelled regular season games from Dec. 1 - Dec. 14 and the All-Star weekend in Columbus.
The Blue Jackets will receive their promised All-Star weekend, but it could be a while. Next season, 2013-14, is an Olympic year. Should the NHL and NHLPA agree in the new CBA to allow the players to represent their countries in Sochi, Russia, the All-Star game would be cancelled due to the 'Olympic break' in the schedule. The All-Star game would finally land in Columbus during the 2014-15 season.
Are you still mad the Ducks didn't get this year's game? Didn't think so.
Here are the games you are missing due to the newest round of cancellations:
12/1 - at Edmonton (Another opportunity to Duck Hunt Justin Schultz)
12/2 - at Vancouver
12/5 - vs. Florida (George Parros' return to Anaheim as a Panther)
12/7 - vs. Columbus
12/9 - vs.
Zach Parise Minnesota
12/13 - vs. Dallas
Chrismukkah hasn't been completely ruined...yet.
