All silent on the NHL talks front

  • Print

NEW YORK -- After the first face-to-face meeting in a week between the NHL and the players' association, the sides spent a relatively quiet weekend apart as the clock ticks down toward another potential lockout.

With less than a week remaining before the collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players runs out, no new negotiations took place after an informal return to the table Friday.

There was hope that negotiations would resume Saturday or Sunday, but the communication between the sides was limited to phone and email instead.

NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr, and his top assistant and brother, Steve Fehr, sat down with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly on Friday for a status check after a week of little to no communication. The sides last held formal discussions on the previous Friday, but those ended with Donald Fehr telling reporters the talks were in a "recess."

The current CBA expires Saturday, and Bettman has said the league will lock out the players if a deal isn't reached by then.
