Another month, another punch in the gut to hockey fans everywhere.
On Friday, the NHL canceled all November games due to the lockout that is still ongoing. This means the league will have lost 26.5 percent of its regular season.
“This is deeply disappointing for all hockey fans and everyone who makes their living from hockey, including the players,” said Donald Fehr, director of the NHL Players’ Association in a statement. “But it comes as no surprise.”
What’s next? The NHL will probably cut the Winter Classic and All-Star Game next week, both which will be held in January.
Hopefully the bleak hope of an agreement will come soon, and the Shark Tank will stop looking so empty and desolate.
