NHL Lockout: League Announces Cancellation Of 2012-13 Preseason Games

The NHL announced the cancellation of its preseason games for the 2012-13 season on Wednesday, which was forced by the NHL lockout and failure to reach a collective bargaining agreement between the NHL Players' Association and the league's owners.

The NHL previously stated it was ready and willing to lock out the players' association if there wasn't an agreement on a new CBA by their deadline of Sept. 15. No significant progress on negotiations have been reported -- which led to the stalemate between the two sides.

Also, according to NHL.com, the Kraft Hockeyville preseason match scheduled for Oct. 3 in Belleville, Ontario has been postponed.

Under Gary Bettman's tenure as commissioner of the NHL, this is the third work stoppage. The NHL is the only North American league to ever miss an entire season due to a labor dispute, back in 2005.

NHL Lockout 2012: Work Stoppage Begins After CBA Expires Saturday

Welcome back to the world of the lockout, hockey fans. Upon the expiration of the Collective Bargaining Agreement of the National Hockey League at midnight on Saturday, the league's fourth in the last two decades officially began at 12:01 a.m. Eastern on Sunday morning.

Owners (led by commissioner Gary Bettman) and players (led by Donald Fehr) failed to reach an agreement on a new CBA before it expired Saturday, and the two sides did not even meet Saturday. General consensus seems to be that it could be a while before a new agreement is reached, and missing an entire season isn't out of the realm of possibility.

The new season was scheduled to begin on October 11, which is almost guaranteed to be changed. Another potential target date to start the season would be on January 1, the date of the Winter Classic (held at Michigan Stadium between the Maple Leafs and Red Wings).
