NHL lockout forces canceled games through Oct. 24
NEW YORK (AP) — The National Hockey League canceled two weeks of the regular season Thursday, the second time games have been lost because of a lockout in seven years.
The announcement was made in a two-paragraph statement from the NHL. It isn't clear if those games will be made up, allowing for a complete 82-game regular season, if a deal can be struck soon with the locked out players.
Unable to work out how to split up $3 billion in hockey-related revenues with the players' association, the NHL wiped out 82 games from Oct. 11 through Oct. 24 — beginning with four next Thursday, which would have been the league's opening night.
