SUNRISE, Fla. -

The NHL lockout has forced the cancellation of all games through the end of November.                 

"The National Hockey League deeply regrets having to take this action.  By presenting a proposal to the NHLPA that contemplated a fair division of revenues and was responsive to Player concerns regarding the value of their contracts, we had hoped to be able to forge a long-term Collective Bargaining Agreement that would have preserved an 82-game Regular Season for our fans.  Unfortunately, that did not occur,” said NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

The Panthers have now lost 21 games because of the lockout. The cancellation includes Florida’s home game against Winnipeg (Nov. 3), Ottawa (Nov. 8), Boston (Nov. 10), NY Rangers (Nov. 21), Detroit (Nov. 23), Tampa Bay (Nov. 25) and Washington (Nov. 29).
