Players’ Union Works on Counter Offer to NHL by End of Week

Players will counteroffer National Hockey League negotiators by the end of the week as the sides seek to reach agreement on a new labor contract before the existing one expires Sept. 15.

Points including the revenue-sharing structure are at the center of the debate between the league and the players’ union, which is mulling a league proposition received two days ago.

Under the current collective bargaining agreement, the players get 57 percent of the hockey-related revenue, while the latest league proposal calls for 46 percent.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman noted that players in the National Football League and National Basketball Association both took a smaller share of revenue after lockouts.

“Reducing the share isn’t something extraordinary, it has become a matter of fact,” Bettman said.
