On Thursday or Friday, days 47 and 48 of hockey’s lockout, the league is poised to cancel its Winter Classic scheduled for New Year’s Day at Michigan Stadium, annually the league’s highest-grossing individual game,as it slips closer toward a completely canceled season. The NHL will owe an additional $250,000 to the University of Michigan if it does not cancel the Detroit Red Wings-Toronto Maple Leafs showdown by Friday, according to AnnArbor.com. The league’s contract with the university reportedly states that it will owe Michigan $100,000 if canceled by Friday, $350,000 if canceled by Dec. 7, and an additional $1 million if canceled after.
