NHL, Union meet with federal mediators Wednesday
The National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association are believed to be back at the bargaining table Wednesday afternoon.

The National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association are believed to be back at the bargaining table Wednesday afternoon.

The side are being joined by federal mediators, according to comments Tuesday from NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

The meeting is being held at an undisclosed location.

The Union announced Wednesday that the following players are taking part in the the negotiating session: Craig Adams, Adrian Aucoin, Brad Boyes, Chris Campoli, Mathieu Darche, Shane Doan, Ron Hainsey, Jamal Mayers, Andy McDonald, Steve Montador, Brendan Morrison, Douglas Murray and Daniel Winnik.

The NHL and NHLPA met with mediators from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services on Nov. 28 and 29, but those meetings broke off without any progress being made.

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

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
