NHL, Union endeavoring to restart labor talks
The National Hockey League and the NHL Players Association are working at getting back to the bargaining table, according to NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

The National Hockey League and the NHL Players Association are working at getting back to the bargaining table, according to NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

The two sides have not met since three days of negotiations last week ended on Thursday without producing a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

"Trying to set up something for this week, but nothing finalized yet," Daly said in regards to resumption of the negotiating process.

The sides met for nearly 20 hours during sessions last Tuesday and Wednesday in New York City before negotiations reached an impasse Thursday evening.

The NHL and NHLPA have been without a CBA since Sept. 16. Games have been cancelled through Dec. 30, along with the 2013 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic and the 2013 NHL All-Star Game.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
