New York, NY (Sports Network) - The NHL and NHLPA held a meeting on Monday as
the two sides continue to try and hammer out a new collective bargaining
The two sides met at the league office around 7:00 p.m. (et) and it lasted a
little less than two hours.
Earlier last week, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman suggested to NHLPA executive
director Donald Fehr that the sides take a two-week break in talks, but the
sides met on Monday for the first time since Nov. 11.
Present at the meeting were Bettman, deputy commissioner Bill Daly and legal
counsel along with several team owners. The players union was represented by
Donald Fehr and special counsel Steve Fehr along with 18 players.
Neither side said anything about the content of Monday's meeting.
Regular season games have been canceled through Nov. 30, along with the Winter
Classic contest that was supposed to be held on New Year's Day in Ann Arbor
between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings.
The two sides have been without a CBA since the previous one expired just
before midnight on Sept. 15.
