On Thursday, the National Hockey League canceled all remaining preseason games. On Friday, the owners and NHLPA will try to keep regular season games from being canceled as well.

A meeting between the two parties is scheduled for Friday, with the opportunity to talk through the weekend should things go positively. The owners and players will have to agree on a new collective bargainning agreement soon or regular season games will start being cut. The urgency for a new CBA is clearly there.

Check out the video above to hear former NHLPA executive director Paul Kelley talk about what to look for this weekend.
