After another fruitless day of talks between the National Hockey League and the NHL Players Association, the league cancelled regular-season games through Nov. 1.
This is the second round of cancellations since the lockout began Sept. 19, and costs another week's worth of games.
The NHL is also prepared to make additional cancellations by the end of next week if a deal isn't reached, according to an ESPNNewYork.com report.
The games have been characterized as "postponed" since the possibility remains of a complete 82-game regular season being played. Commissioner Gary Bettman said the league could still play all games if play resumed by Nov. 2.
The league rejected all three of the NHLPA's proposals submitted in response to their latest offer, submitted on Tuesday. No additional talks have been scheduled.
