NHL-Lockout forces NHL to cancel more games, All-Star Weekend

Reuters Middle East

Nov 23 (Reuters) - The National Hockey League cancelled another two weeks of the regular season on Friday and scrapped the 2013 All-Star weekend in Columbus due to a lockout that threatens the entire season.

The decision wipes out games through Dec. 14 and brings the total number of lost regular season games to 422, or 34.3 percent of the 2012-13 season.

The 2012-13 regular season was originally scheduled to begin on Oct. 11 but the NHL locked out players in mid-September when the previous labor agreement expired with the two sides at odds over how to split $3.3 billion in revenue. (Reporting by Steve Keating in Toronto; Editing by Frank Pingue)
