The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through Nov. 1.
The league had previously canceled all games scheduled through Oct. 24. The most recent cancellation affects three Islanders games, including two home games. This most recent cancellation brings the total number of canceled Islanders games to nine.
The cancellation was necessary because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL.
