NHL, NHLPA resume CBA negotiations in NYC
Negotiations toward a new Collective Bargaining Agreement resumed Wednesday at the League office.

NEW YORK -- Negotiations toward a new Collective Bargaining Agreement resumed Wednesday at the League office.

A session featuring NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly, NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr and Special Counsel Steve Fehr lasted approximately an hour, breaking at close to 1 p.m. A larger meeting in the late afternoon lasted close to four hours.

Commissioner Bettman, Daly and the Fehr brothers also met Friday in Toronto.

The NHL announced last week the cancellation of the first two weeks of the regular-season schedule, a total of 82 games, due to the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The NHL locked out the players Sept. 16 following the expiration of the previous CBA.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
