NHL lockout 2012: Bill Daly meets with NHLPA in Toronto

The NHL and NHL Players Association held an unannounced meeting in Toronto on Friday afternoon, according to John Shannon of SportsNet.

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly confirmed the meeting occurred but declined further comment. The meeting reportedly took place between Daly, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr and his brother Steve. According to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, the two sides are expected to be in contact over the weekend.

This meeting comes only one day after the NHL announced the cancelation of all regular season games from Oct. 11 to Oct. 24. The cancellation of games was described as necessary by the league because of the absence of a new collective bargaining agreement with the NHLPA. However, Fehr contends that games did not have to be cancelled, as the players are willing to play while the two sides continue to negotiate.

As of this time, the two sides remain at odds over key issues such as core economics and the definition of hockey related revenue.
