The union and the NHL could meet again later Wednesday after the league looks over the proposal.
The NHL had presented the players with a counteroffer Tuesday night.
Commissioner Gary Bettman said Monday that the league had told the union a deal needs to be in place by Jan. 11 so a 48-game season can begin eight days later. All games through Jan. 14 have been canceled, claiming more than 50 percent of the original schedule.
