NHL Provides Notice To NHLPA That It Wants CBA Changes

The NHL provided written notice to the NHLPA that it intends to change and/or end the current CBA, an NHLPA spokesperson confirmed. The CBA, which expires on Sept. 15, requires that either the NHL or the union send notice to the other 120 days before the agreement ends. Friday is 120 days out from the expiration of the CBA. While the notice by the NHL to the players union is procedural, it is a sign that the league is not willing to proceed under the terms of the current CBA, which was agreed to after the '04-05 NHL lockout.

The NHLPA could have also provided the league with notice, but did not do so, one source said. The league informed the NHLPA it was going to send notice yesterday and the union received the written notice, as required under the expiring deal, today. Another source said the NHL has provided notice prior to today.
