The NHL has cancelled all games through January 14th today.
The total games lost so far has reached over 50 percent, with 625 games cancelled between October 15th through January 14th.
The real question is how many more games can be possibly cancelled before they just say screw it, let’s cancel the season. It seems like either the Mayans were predicting the end of the world or maybe they were just predicting the end of the NHL!
Adios 1/2 of the season, hopefully the NHL and NHLPA will get their heads out of their rear ends and get this season started!
