NHL Announces Cancellation of All Regular Season Games Through November 30

NHL Announces Cancellation of All Regular Season Games Through November 30The deadline for a full NHL season has come and gone, and with it has passed the opportunity for any games until at least December.

The league will be cancelling all games scheduled for November, after a Thursday deadline to save a full 82-game season passed.

“The National Hockey League deeply regrets having to take
this action,” deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in a statement. “We had hoped to be able
to forge a long-term collective bargaining agreement that would have preserved
an 82-game regular season for our fans.
Unfortunately, that did not occur.

“We
acknowledge and accept that there is joint responsibility in collective
bargaining and, though we are profoundly disappointed that a new agreement has
not been attained to this point, we remain committed to achieving an agreement
that is fair for the players and the clubs — one that will be good for the
game and our fans.”

So far this season, the NHL has lost a total of 326 games and is reportedly planning to cancel the All-Star Game and the Winter Classic on Monday.
