NHL-NHLPA meet until late Tuesday night, will meet Wednesday

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild off-season news Updated: November 6, 2012 - 10:03 PM

In an effort to end the lockout, the NHL and NHLPA met for more than seven hours today at an undisclosed situation in New York.

The Big Four from both sides and 13 players were involved in the meeting, and the good news is the sides plan to meet again Wednesday.

Is this the beginning of the end? We should know in short while, but this is hopefully a good sign after Bill Daly and Steve Fehr met in a series of meetings for most the day on Saturday.

A statement from Daly, the league's deputy commissioner: "Collective bargaining negotiations between the National Hockey League and representatives of the National Hockey League's Players' Association recessed tonight at 10:15 pm. With meetings scheduled to resume Wednesday, the League will not characterize the substance or detail of the discussions until their conclusion."
