(TORONTO) — The NHL made a new collective bargaining agreement proposal to its locked-out players on Tuesday, in which they offered a 50-50 split in hockey-related revenue and a full 82-game regular season.
“We are focused on getting the puck dropped on November 2nd and playing a full 82-game regular season and full playoffs,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. “That’s what this offer is all about.”
The league locked out its players on Sept. 15, with the regular season scheduled to begin on Oct. 11.
“I have been looking for a way to get these negotiations started and if this does it, that will be great,” NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr said. “We’ll see though.”
