One day after Gary Bettman shot down three potential contracts given to him by the NHLPA, the league announced the cancellation of all games through Nov. 1. This includes 135 total games, including seven for the Blackhawks.
Chicago was expected to open the season on Oct. 13 at home vs. Columbus, and will lose games at Winnipeg (1016), vs. Colorado (1018), vs. Detroit (1020), at St. Louis (1023), vs. San Jose (1027) and vs. Phoenix (1030).
On Oct. 4 the NHL cancelled all games through Oct. 24, a total of 82 games.
Bettman said yesterday that the Winter Classic between the Red Wings and Maple Leafs, scheduled for Jan. 1, is also in doubt.
