The NHL wiped out the schedule through Nov. 1 on Friday, one day after rejecting three proposals from the NHLPA during a brief bargaining session in Toronto.
The league had previously canceled the Oct. 11-24 portion of the schedule but said that if a collective bargaining agreement can be reached by this coming Wednesday, training camp can begin Thursday with the aim of having a full 82-game season starting Nov. 2.
If that occurs, which seems unlikely, nine Wild games would have to be rescheduled. That would happen by adding one game a week every five weeks and games at the end of the season, which is scheduled to end April 13.
