TORONTO (AP) - The NHL and its players' union will return to bargaining Wednesday at an undisclosed location in an effort to save the hockey season.
The Canadian Press on Tuesday reported the resumption of talks, citing unidentified people on both sides of the dispute.
Tuesday marks the 87th day of the lockout. Wednesday's session will be the first meeting since the sides criticized each other after talks broke off last week.
Until then, they appeared to be making progress during three days in New York in which they exchanged proposals. Union executive director Donald Fehr maintains there are agreements on almost all the important issues.
