The National Hockey League expects its second lockout in eight years as the NHL and the NHL Players Association continue to argue over a collective bargaining agreement.
Minnesota Public Radio News reported that the NHL and the NHL Players Association are trying to work through issues regarding how revenues should be shared and distributed.
Bill Daly, the NHL's deputy commissioner told the Star Tribune's Michael Russo "It does not appear as if there will be any formal bargaining today. Neither side has altered its position on substance in the last 48 hours."
This lockout brings back memories of the unfortunate 2004 NHL lockout but the NHL and players hope that this time an a agreement can be reached without sacrificing any games in the upcoming season.
The lockout will officially begin later this evening.
