The NHL and NHLPA are scheduled to meet in New York Friday to discuss non-core economic issues marking the first time the two sides will hold a formal bargaining session since Sept. 12. With no indication that a new collective bargaining agreement is imminent, though, the NHL has canceled all remaining preseason games.

That includes four Capitals exhibition contests scheduled for Oct. 1 at Columbus, Oct. 3 at Boston, Oct. 5 vs. Nashville and Oct. 7 vs. Detroit.  September’s preseason contests were axed last week
