NEW YORK (November 23, 2012) -- The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through December 14. The NHL also announced the cancellation of the 2013 NHL All-Star Weekend scheduled for Jan. 26-27 in Columbus, Ohio. The cancellations are necessary due to the absence of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players Association and the NHL. A total of 422 regular-season games 34.3 percent of the season were scheduled for Oct. 11 through Dec. 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.
