NHL, NHLPA meet in Toronto for CBA discussion.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly met Friday in Toronto with NHL Players' Association Executive Director Donald Fehr and Special Counsel Steve Fehr to resume negotiations toward a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The unexpected meeting came one day after the League announced the cancellation of the first two weeks of the regular-season schedule, a total of 82 games.

"Yes we had a meeting," Daly said Friday afternoon. "Nothing else to report at this time."

The sides did not announce when the next meeting will take place.

The League locked out the players on Sept. 16 because of the absence of a new CBA.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
