NHL Cancels Entire Pre-Season

Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — NHL season ticket holders won’t have to pay for exhibition games next month. The league has canceled the rest of the preseason, just a day before negotiations were set to resume in an effort to end the lockout. Negotiators are expected to spend tomorrow working on secondary economic issues as opposed to the core of the dispute, which is how to split more than $3 billion in annual revenue.

The NHL had already called off all the exhibition games scheduled in September. The regular season is supposed to begin on Oct. 11.
