NHL Labor Talks Set to Resume Tuesday
NHL labor talks are set to resume Tuesday morning, with discussions focusing on hockey-related revenue and not the core economic issues that continue to divide the two sides in a league-imposed lockout entering its third week.
A person familiar with negotiations said Monday the meeting is scheduled to take place in New York. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the NHL and the NHL Players’ Association have not issued an update on talks.
The person added there are no other meetings planned beyond Tuesday.
Negotiators for the league and players will pick up where they left off after Sunday, when they completed three straight days of discussions. The talks focused on secondary issues, such as what should define hockey-related revenue, as well as player health and safety.
