NHL cancels games through Jan. 14

The National Hockey League announced today that all games through January 14th have been cancelled. For the Predators, that means the following games have been affected:

December 31 at Dallas
January 2 at Phoenix
January 4 at Detroit
January 5 at Minnesota
January 8 vs. Chicago
January 11 at St. Louis
January 12 vs. Columbus

The 1994-95 NHL lockout ended on Jan. 11, 1995 and the league was able to squeeze in a 48-game schedule and postseason. That season began nine days after an agreement was made.

In this instance, the NHL did not set a drop-dead date to reach a new CBA. However, between the way these cancellations have gone this fall and using the 1994-95 season as an example, a new CBA needs to be reached by the first week of January. It is expected that the next cancellation will wipe out the rest of the 2012-13 season.
