Player's union, NHL meet to discuss league's latest proposal


The last day of the year makes 2013 look a little more promising for the idled National Hockey League.

The Associated Press reports that the NHL and locked-out player's association met at the bargaining table Monday for the first time since Dec. 13.

The meeting was held so the player's union could give their counterproposal to an offer made by the league last Thursday.

Union executive director Donald Fehr said the union the meeting "covered the range of subjects that their document included."

According to The AP, the league said it would review the players' new contract offer and contact the union in the morning.

The lockout has resulted in the cancellation of more than half of this season's games. Last week the league canceled all games through Jan. 14.

Locally, the lockout has affected the Wild on and off the ice. Last month the team's employees were forced to take pay cuts and work reduced hours.

The lockout also led St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman to state how he's disappointed in both the league and the union, noting how the stalemate has "resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue for businesses in downtown Saint Paul."
