NHL, NHLPA To Meet Friday For First Face-To-Face CBA Talks

The NHLPA wrapped up three days of meetings this week in Chicago in preparation for negotiations with the league on a new collective bargaining agreement. The players have refused to divulge exactly what they're after in these negotiations, but we do know they will begin Friday in New York City.

The NHLPA announced Wednesday a 31-player committee that will play the largest role in negotiations.

"It's great to see that so many players have chosen to participate in bargaining and get involved in the important work ahead for their Association," said Donald Fehr, NHLPA Executive Director, in a press release. "I'm certain this group of players and all players who will be attending bargaining sessions will do a great job."

All bargaining sessions are open to all players, but this group of 31 players will do much of the work on behalf of the entire union membership.
