NHL Players' Association executive director Donald Fehr says negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement won't take a Christmas holiday.
Joining TSN Radio 1050's Cybulski & Company on the same day the league announced the cancellation of all games scheduled through Jan. 14, Fehr expressed hope that momentum towards a new deal could continue as the traditionally slow business period of the holidays arrives.
"We owe that to the fans and we obviously owe it to our own members and I believe the NHL would owe it to its owners, so hopefully that won't be an impediment," Fehr said.
"I'll make the following assumption," Fehr told TSN, "we're involved in serious negotiations. We've got to try to find a way to make an agreement and for my part and my staff we'll make whoever needs to be available available in order to get the job done."
