NEW YORK — The NHL has put a new deal on the table in the latest round of collective bargaining.
NHL Players’ Association executive director Donald Fehr confirms the league offered a new proposal during negotiations today.
The union and NHL agreed to meet for a second day of talks on Wednesday.
Fehr says the players’ association will need time to review the proposal.
Fehr says it’s “a proposal that we intend to respond to.”
The current collective agreement expires Sept. 15 and the NHL has it will lock the players out if a new deal isn’t reached by then.
