NHL Cancels Season Through Dec. 30

nhl-guyNEW YORK — The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through December 30 as the player lockout continued with no collective bargaining agreement in place.

The announcement means that 42.8% of the season has now been called off, including the popular Winter Classic game. The season should have started on October 11.

“The reality of losing more regular season games as well as the 2013 NHL All-Star Weekend in Columbus is extremely disappointing,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said in a statement.

The last lockout of NHL players by the owners wiped out the 2004-05 season.
