To date, there have been 422 regular-season games lost due to the lockout, and today's announcement will nix another 104 games. The NHL Winter Classic and NHL All-Star Game were already cancelled. A total of 526 regular-season games (42.8 percent of the season) were scheduled for Oct. 11 through Dec. 30.
There was talk that the NHL would cancel games through mid-January 2013, but such a decision won't be made until later this month, if talks continue without any significant progress.
The NHL is losing between $18 million and $20 million per day, while the Players have lost more than $555 million in salaries.
Negotiations between the NHL and the NHLPA broke down last week in New York after emotions started to run high. Both side are frustrated, as talks could resume later this week.
"Throughout this whole process, guys, it's been the same thing. They're not willing to talk about individual issues," NHLPA special assistant Mathieu Schneider told TFP during an interview on TFP LIVE on SiriusXM. "They want us to make full proposals.
"I think any sane person doesn't understand what's going on in this negotiation right now. With what is on the table, with what has been offered, I do not understand for the life of me why we are not playing hockey right now."
A date has not yet been set, though TFP has learned that the two sides are eyeing Wednesday as a target date to meet again in New York.
"Trying to set up something for this week, but nothing finalized yet," Daly told NHL.com.
