NHL cancels all-star match and more games through Dec. 14

WINNIPEG — The NHL pushed the potential start of any regular season back two more weeks today, officially wiping more games off the schedule.

All games through Dec. 14 are now cancelled, bringing to 422 the number of contests out the window.

Mick E. Moose, the Winnipeg Jets mascot, takes in the pre-game ceremonies at the NHL All-Star game in January 2012 in Ottawa. The 2013 all-star game in Columbus, slated for Jan. 26-27, has been cancelled due to the ongoing NHL labour dispute.

Another casualty of the labour dispute, which began officially on Sept. 15 with the expiration of the old Collective Bargaining Agreement, is the 2013 all-star game in Columbus, slated for Jan. 26-27.

"The reality of losing more regular-season games as well as the 2013 NHL All-Star Weekend in Columbus is extremely disappointing," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in the league’s announcement. "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."

The announcement today lops six more Jets games off the schedule, including home games against Tampa Bay, Boston, Carolina and the Islanders.
