The NHL lockout will continue into December and has claimed another of the league's marquee events.

The league announced today that all games until December 14th have been officially cancelled, as has the league's All-Star weekend, which was due to take place in Columbus, Ohio on January 26 and 27, 2013. The cancellations mean the dispute between the NHL and its players' association has resulted in 422 cancelled games, or 34.3% of the season. The All-Star Game and its surrounding festivities are the second high-profile casualty of the game cancellations - the Winter Classic, played annually on New Year's Day, was cancelled earlier this month.
