NHL Lockout Claims 53 More Games

The National Hockey League announced on Friday the cancellation of the 2012-13 league schedule through November 1.

This brings the total number of games cancelled from the schedule to 135.  The schedule through October 24 had previously been cancelled on October 4.

The league has made a point to say that the games themselves are not yet cancelled, only the original scheduling of those games.  During collective bargaining sessions this week, the league made a proposal that included an 82-game schedule to begin on November 2.

For the Detroit Red Wings, the new cancellation affect an October 26 home game against the San Jose Sharks and visits to the Winnipeg Jets, Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames on October 27, October 29, and November 1.
