NEW YORK (AP) - NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and players' association special counsel Steve Fehr spoke to each other on Saturday, but the sides still have no plans to meet face-to-face as a deadline to preserve a full hockey season draws nearer.
No details of what Daly and Fehr discussed on Saturday were released, but both sides said there were no new developments on the 35th day of the lockout.
On Friday, the NHL canceled all games through Nov. 1. The league said in its most recent proposal to the players that a deal must be reached by Thursday in order for the season to start on Nov. 2 and for each team to play a complete 82-game season.
Talks broke off quickly on Thursday after the NHLPA made three counterproposals that were rejected by the NHL, two days after the league's latest offer to the union.
