NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL says it has canceled the rest of the 2012 preseason.
The league announced the move Thursday in a two-sentence statement. NHL owners locked out players on Sept. 16 when the collective bargaining agreement expired.
The NHL had already called off all the preseason games scheduled in September. The regular season is supposed to begin on Oct. 11.
The two sides have scheduled talks on Friday in New York, although they are on secondary economic issues as opposed to the core of the dispute, which is how to split more than $3 billion in annual revenue.
