Bad news. More cancelled games.

The NHL’s press release:

NEW YORK – The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through January 14. The cancellations are necessary due to the absence of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL.

A total of 625 regular-season games—50.8 percent of the season—were scheduled for October 11 through January 14.

It’s Day 96 of the NHL lockout and January 15th seems to have become the unofficial “drop-dead” date for the season. The NHL and NHLPA haven’t had any CBA negotiations this week and none are planned. The waiting game continues.
