Over the course of the last few days, the NHL and NHLPA have been meeting in a “secret location” (New York) discussing the NHL Lockout, and presumably, working on ways to get the season going again.

Having already canceled the entire preseason, the NHL prolonged the lockout Thursday by canceling all regular season games through Oct. 24.
