Icepocalypse 2012: NHL Cancels Games To Dec. 14th & All-Star Weekend

New, comment

As grown men continue to act like children, we lose more hockey games. I swear to Teemu, if anyone related to the negotiations says, "I feel bad for the fans" one more time...

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.
