(Update: They came today.)
The schedule, currently scrapped through Dec. 30, will be canceled through Jan. 14.
So…where does that leave things?
Well, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said yesterday that the season’s point of no return was “sometime in mid-January.” It’s possible then that the next cancellation could be the season in its entirety.
Hearing NHL will cancel up to Jan. 14. No more BS, we're at the end.—

Expect word today\tonight the NHL will cancel regular season games thru Jan 14th. End of the line after that...I suspect.—

A total of 625 regular-season games—50.8 percent of the season—were scheduled for October 11 through January 14.
