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

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
