As the National Hockey League's lockout reaches its 18th consecutive day with no immediate resolution in sight, the league has announced that 82 regular-season games, which were originally scheduled to take place from Oct. 11 to Oct. 24, have been canceled. The NHL lockout is the result of an ongoing clash between NHL owners and players over revenue, contracts, and free agency. The latest dispute comes just seven years after the NHL's last lockout, which eventually resulted in the cancellation of an entire hockey season.
