The NHLPA announced that 18 players will be meeting with six owners on Tuesday as part of a players/owners meeting.

The NHL Players Association announced on Tuesday afternoon that 18 players will be participating in a meeting with six owners later on Tuesday afternoon.

The meeting will take place without the presence of NHL commissioner Gary Bettman or NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr in the hopes of opening a dialogue between the two sides to gain traction in negotiations. However, special counsel Steve Fehr will be present for the union as will NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly for the owners, among other counsel.

The players who will be in attendance for the meeting are as follows: Craig Adams, David Backes, Mike Cammalleri, Sidney Crosby, B.J. Crombeen, Mathieu Darche, Shane Doan, Ron Hainsey, Shawn Horcoff, Jamal Mayers, Manny Malhotra, Andy McDonald, Ryan Miller, George Parros, Brad Richards, Martin St. Louis, Jonathan Toews and Kevin Westgarth.

They will be meeting with Jeremy Jacobs (owner of the Boston Bruins), N. Murray Edwards (Calgary Flames), Ted Leonsis (Washington Capitals), Craig Leipold (Minnesota Wild), Ron Burkle (Pittsburgh Penguins) and Larry Tanenbaum (Toronto Maple Leafs).

The meeting is scheduled to start around 2 p.m., ET in New York.
