NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL says it has made a new contract offer to the players in an attempt to end the lockout and save the season.
Deputy commissioner Bill Daly says in a statement Friday that a “comprehensive” proposal was made a day earlier, although he would not discuss details.
He adds that the league is “hopeful” that once the union and its negotiating committee review the proposal “they will share it with the players. We want to be back on the ice as soon as possible.”
The lockout is in its 104th day. The NHL says it doesn’t want a season of less than 48 games. To make that possible, a deal likely must be reached by mid-January. The sides haven’t met face to face since talks with a federal mediator broke down Dec. 13.
