NEW YORK — NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says he’s “pleased with the ongoing progress” as labor negotiations are resuming with players Wednesday following a meeting of the league’s board of governors.
Bettman returned to the site of talks with the players’ association after spending about two hours with executives from the league’s 30 teams a few blocks away. The commissioner offered a brief statement but declined to take questions.
Bettman and union executive director Donald Fehr are again sitting out the latest round of talks that are made up of six team owners and 18 players, along with staff and counsel on both sides. Players and owners met for a total of nearly eight hours on Tuesday in different size groups. Enough progress was made to get back to the bargaining table after talks ended around midnight Tuesday.
The lockout entered its 81st day Wednesday.
