Minnesota Wild Owner, Players Make Trip For CBA Negotiations

The NHL and the Players' Association are in dangerous territory right now. With a Sept. 15 deadline approaching, the NHL could lock its players out if a new collective bargaining agreement isn't reached. As such, the two sides will be meeting throughout the week to try and get closer on some of the issues that have them so far apart.

Darren Wolfson reports via Twitter that the Minnesota Wild will have four players at Wednesday's labor meeting in New York.

He also reports that majority owner Craig Leipold will be in attendance. It's unclear at this point whether either side expects something to get done prior to the deadline, let alone on Wednesday, but it's good that they're meeting up.And it's good that the Wild appear to have solid representation. Teams vary in their representation around the league, but four seems like a good number of players to be around for the Wild.
