NHL Labor Negotiations Continue On Wednesday

Labor talks between the NHL and the players union are set to begin again this week with time running out before a potential lockout is put into place, as the AP reports via the Pioneer Press.

NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman are scheduled to meet for negotiations at the union's headquarters in Toronto on Wednesday. It's the first time that the two sides will convene after negotiations seemingly hit a major snag last week.

Both sides are still talking like a deal can be reached early enough for the regular season to begin on time, but there's general pessimism in other circles that such a situation will occur. The current collective bargaining agreement expires on Sept. 15, and the NHL has already told players that a lockout will be put in place if a new CBA isn't agreed to by then.
