Report: NHL leaders quietly meet with NHLPA over lockout

NHL leaders held an unscheduled meeting Friday at the NHL Players' Association office in Toronto, a day after canceling the first two weeks of regular-season games.

News of the meeting led by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, deputy commissioner Bill Daly and union leaders Donald and Steve Fehr didn't become public until it was over.

Mike Brehm and Kevin Allen of USA Today had comments from both sides:

"(The) meeting was regarding trying to move this process forward," NHLPA spokesman Jonathan Weatherdon said.

"We went up today to see if there was something we could do to encourage them to give us a new proposal," Daly said in an email. "Anything. Even if it moves us backwards, at least we would have movement."

NHL and NHLPA leaders said they would stay in contact over the weekend.

"Not sure we will really know whether we made progress until we talk again -- likely by phone over the weekend," Daly said.
