NEW YORK — The NHL and its locked-out players will resume negotiations today in Toronto after a four-day break following two days of meetings last week.
The announcement came on the same day players missed their first scheduled paycheck of the regular season. The NHL has called off 82 games through Oct. 24. More cancellations likely will be made soon if a deal isn’t reached.
An agenda is not yet set for the talks that shift to the union’s office from league headquarters. But the sides will be looking to make headway on the core economic issue — the division of hockey-related revenue. That issue took a back seat in New York last week when the league and union worked on secondary matters that also must be resolved.
