No hockey before Nov. 1, as more NHL games are cancelled

NEW YORK, N.Y. – The National Hockey League is cancelling another batch of regular-season games.

The league says all games through Nov. 1 have been scrubbed due to the absence of a collective bargaining agreement with the NHL Players’ Association.

The players have been locked out for over a month.

The league had already cancelled the first two weeks of the regular season.

The initial cancellation wiped 82 games off the schedule — that number is now up to 135.

Both sides exchanged proposals this week in Toronto but no new talks are scheduled.
