It’s official, the lockout has cost the NHL and its players the first chunk of regular season games. The NHL announced they’re canceling the first two weeks worth of the schedule from October 11-24 thanks to the lockout. In all, that makes 82 games to be canceled by the league. The wording of the NHL release leaves open the possibility the games could be rescheduled should a new CBA be worked out.
