See, kids? You CAN spell Christmas without "N-H-L". In a move that's not surprising given the current status of CBA negotiations, the NHL has written off another two weeks' worth of games.
Quoth the NHL:
The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through December 30. The cancellations are necessary due to the absence of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players' Association and the NHL.
A total of 526 regular-season games-42.8 percent of the season-were scheduled for October 11 through December 30.
It's alright though, folks. Who needs actual hockey games when you can follow Colin Wilson on Twitter again?
