ST. PAUL, Minn. - With no movement on a collective bargaining agreement the news was inevitable.
The National Hockey League announced Thursday the cancellation of 82 regular season games that were scheduled from October 11 through October 24.
For the Minnesota Wild that means the loss of three home games and two road games.
A statement on the Wild website says the cancellation was necessary because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players' Association and the NHL.
