Right when you thought it was safe to escape labor stories in the NHL, there’s some news on that front – just not with the players.
Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports the NHL and the league’s referees will meet in Toronto on Tuesday to try and and get a new Collective Bargaining Agreement set before the season.
The two sides last came to an agreement back in 2010 and came away with a four-year deal, as The Sporting News recalled. Is it possible things could get anxious and we run into a situation like the NFL had with their officials a couple years ago? It doesn’t look that way.
Back in 2010 the officials worked through the preseason before reaching an agreement before the season started.
