NHL, union to resume labor talks Friday



TORONTO (AP) — The NHL and its locked-out players are to return to the bargaining table Friday.

Deputy commissioner Bill Daly and NHL Players’ Association special counsel Steve Fehr met Tuesday in Toronto and scheduled the session. The site has not been set.

These will be the first formal negotiations since Sept. 12, when the players and owners exchanged proposals.

Neither of those offers gained much traction and the lockout started at midnight on Sept. 15.
