NHL Cancels Games Through Nov. 1 as Player Lockout Continues

Oct. 19 (Bloomberg) -- The National Hockey League canceled another week of games through Nov. 1 as a lockout of players continues.

The league said in a statement that a total of 135 regular-season games have now been lost to the shutdown, which started when the old collective bargaining agreement expired on Sept. 15. It earlier called off the first two weeks of the season, which was to have begun Oct. 11.

The league and players’ union are at odds over how to split revenue that reached a record $3 billion last season. The league proposed a 50-50 split this week, and rejected union counter-proposals yesterday. Commissioner Gary Bettman said the latest talks were a “step backward.”
