NHL Cancels Remaining Preseason Games

The National Hockey League announced the cancellation of the second half of the league’s preseason exhibition schedule on Thursday.  The move comes eight days after the first half of the preseason was cancelled.

Both moves are part of the league’s lockout of the NHL Players’ Association.  The two sides have not formally met for negotiations since the lockout began.

For the Detroit Red Wings, cancelled games include a home game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, a home-and-home series with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and a visit to the Washington Capitals.

No regular season games have been cancelled as of yet.
