NHL CBA Negotiations: NHLPA To Hold Regional Meeting In Chicago

The NHL and the NHLPA have until Sept. 15 to come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement before the old one expires. The NHL has made an offer to the players, but the players have yet to make their counteroffer back to the league. That counteroffer is likely to be the topic of discussion at the NHLPA's regional meeting in Chicago on Thursday and Friday.

If the two sides can't agree on a deal before Sept. 15, then a lockout will begin in earnest, which could include the cancellation of training camps and eventually preseason and regular season games.

The NHLPA is headed by Donald Fehr, who directed baseball's player association from 1986-2009.
