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

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.

— Islanders Hall of Fame defenseman Denis Potvin on former coach Al Arbour, who passed away Friday at the age of 82
