The National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association have agreed to get back to the bargaining table Wednesday and will be joined by federal mediators, according to NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.
The meeting will be held at an undisclosed location.
Daly said that the session Wednesday will involve federal mediators and will not be held in New York City.
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.
