The NHL announced that they have cancelled games through December 14th, as well as the NHL All Star game and all All Star related weekend festivities.
Though it is always a tough blow for fans to see another batch of games cancelled, the fact that they haven’t outright cancelled the season, plus the fact that they continue to meet and work towards a solution (we hope), leads us to believe that despite all the bickering, hockey may yet be played.
Interestingly enough, last year the NBA provided their fans with a wonderful gift for the holidays as they resolved their labour dispute just in time for Christmas.
Seeing the NHL leave a window open right before the holidays, though more a gesture of public relations, it still gives us hope that hockey fans may have something to cheer about other than time off for the holidays!
Check back soon as we continue to update the situation.
