In a move that was expected, the NHL has cancelled the remainder of the preseason schedule.
The Wings, who were scheduled to report to training camp in Traverse City on Sept. 21, are supposed to open the regular season at home against the Nashville Predators on Oct. 12.
The NHL season opens on Oct. 11.
Here is the press release from the NHL:
NEW YORK (September 27, 2012) – The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the remainder of the 2012 preseason schedule.
The cancellation of the preseason schedule was necessary because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’
Association and the NHL.
