NHL Labor Talks to Resume Tuesday in Toronto
By IRA PODELL, AP Sports Writer
NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL and locked-out players’ union will resume negotiations Tuesday in Toronto after a four-day break following two days of meetings last week.
An agenda is not yet set for the talks that shift to the union’s office.
But the sides will be looking to make headway on the core economic issues in a dispute that threaten the already delayed season. Discussions on how to divide hockey-related revenue took a back seat last week in New York when the league and union worked on secondary issues that also need to be resolved.
The NHL has called off 82 games through Oct. 24 — the first two weeks of the regular season. More cancellations likely will be made soon if a deal isn’t reached.
