Will the Sabres Play at All This Season?
The NHL has decided to cancel some regular season games for the 2012-13 season.
Last week, the NHL announced that all preseason games would be canceled. The National Hockey League announced today (October 4) the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular season schedule through October 24. A total of 82 regular season games were scheduled for October 11 through October 24.
The cancellation was necessary because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players' Association and the NHL.
The lockout is the NHL's fourth shutdown since 1992, including a year-long dispute that forced the cancellation of the entire 2004-05 season.
