NEW YORK (October 10, 2012) -- Bill Daly, Deputy Commissioner of the National Hockey League, released the following statement regarding today’s ruling by the Alberta Labour Board:

“We are pleased with the Alberta Labour Board’s ruling today that the lockout of Players is effective on a League-wide basis, including in Alberta, and we are extremely appreciative of the decisive manner in which the matter was handled.

“We are hopeful that this ruling will enable both the League and the NHL Players’ Association to focus all of our efforts and energies on negotiating a new Collective Bargaining Agreement in order to get our game and our Players back on the ice.”

NHLPA Statement,

TORONTO (October 10, 2012) – The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) released the following statement regarding today’s decision by the Alberta Labour Relations Board:

“The players are obviously disappointed with today’s decision. Unfortunately, the Alberta Labour Relations Board decided not to exercise its discretion to determine whether the owners’ lockout violates Alberta law. We will consider our further options with regard to this case.

In the meantime, the players want to play, the fans want to watch the game, and the many workers and business owners who are dependent on NHL hockey for their livelihood want the season to start. We remain committed to reaching a fair agreement at the earliest possible time and hope that the NHL begins to show a willingness to do so.”
