Meetings scheduled today in lockout

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly confirmed that the league and the locked-out players union will meet today and Thursday in new York, but said core economic issues at the heart of the dispute between the sides won't be addressed.

In an interview on the Hockey Night in Canada show on Sirius Radio, Daly said the NHL and NHL Players Association need to agree on some smaller issues to move forward on how to divide revenues, the big sticking point between the sides.

Daly said the meetings will be "an effort to follow up on some of the issues we were (discussing) about a week ago. And get as many of these side issues in the can as possible, because ultimately, knock on wood, we're going to reach an agreement and hopefully we're going to be moving very, very quickly to get the players back on the ice."

All regular-season games through Oct. 24 have been canceled.

HASEK GIVES UP ON RETURN: Veteran goaltender Dominik Hasek appears to have given up hope of returning to the NHL again. Hasek, 47, resumed training ahead of this season hoping to get picked up by an NHL club, but told Czech daily Sport that it is "very unlikely" he would play again after no team offered him a contract amid the lockout. Known as the "Dominator," Hasek was named most valuable player twice and won the Vezina Trophy six times.

ZETTERBERG TO SWITZERLAND: Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg will play for Swiss club EV Zug during the lockout.

BACK TO SCHOOL: Blue Jackets forward R.J. Umberger is returning to his alma mater, and staying in Columbus, to help coach the Ohio State men's team during the lockout.

LONGTIME VOICE DIES: Budd Lynch, a veteran radio broadcaster who spent more than 60 years working for the Red Wings and became the team's public voice, died Tuesday. He was 95. Mr. Lynch, the club's public address announcer, died after a brief illness at a Detroit-area rehabilitation center, the team said. Mr. Lynch was the longest-tenured employee in team history, with 63 years of service.
