GAME OFF

Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE -

On this date in 2005, NHL com­mis­sioner Gary Bettman an­nounced the can­cel­la­tion of the 2004-2005 hockey sea­son on the 154th day of a lock­out. It was the first time a ma­jor sports league had lost an en­tire sea­son and play­offs to labour trou­ble. The dis­pute lasted 310 days but ended in July, 2005 when a new six-year col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing agree­ment was rat­i­fied.
