The National Hockey League has scuttled yet more of its season, announcing today that all games through December 14 are cancelled - as are its annual All-Star Weekend festivities - due to a labor impasse.
The season should have started October 11, but league owners authorized a lockout until they and the NHL Players' Association reach a new collective bargaining agreement. Up through this week, the NHL had nixed games through November 30 and its annual outdoor Winter Classic.
Friday's announcement means that 34.3% of the season has been called off. So, too, is the All-Star weekend, which would have been January 26 and 27 in Columbus, Ohio.FULL STORY
