NHL cancels all games through November

ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

The NHL has canceled all games through November with as owners and players still locked in dispute over revenue sharing.

A total of 326 regular season games -- 26.5 percent of the season -- were scheduled for Oct. 11 through Nov. 30. In total, 10 Minnesota Wild home games and 13 road games have been canceled.

"The National Hockey League deeply regrets having to take this action," deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in a statement. "By presenting a proposal to the NHLPA that contemplated a fair division of revenues and was responsive to player concerns regarding the value of their contracts, we had hoped to be able to forge a long-term collective bargaining agreement that would have preserved an 82-game regular season for our fans. Unfortunately, that did not occur. We acknowledge and accept that there is joint responsibility in collective bargaining and, though we are profoundly disappointed that a new agreement has not been attained to this point."
