NHL Announces Cancellation of Games Through December 14, All-Star Game

Friday, 11.23.2012 / 2:00 PM

The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through December 14 because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL. The league also announced the cancellation of the NHL All-Star Game, scheduled for January 27 in Columbus.

A total of 422 regular-season games -– including 28 Ducks games -- were scheduled for Oct. 11 through December 14.

"The reality of losing more regular-season games as well as the 2013 NHL All-Star Weekend in Columbus is extremely disappointing," said NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly. "We feel badly for NHL fans and particularly those in Columbus, and we intend to work closely with the Blue Jackets organization to return the NHL All-Star events to Columbus and their fans as quickly as possible."
