The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012 preseason schedule through Sept. 30.
The Islanders had two home preseason games scheduled for the month of September. On Thursday, Sept. 27 the Islanders were to face-off against the Edmonton Oilers at Evraz Place in Regina, SK. The second preseason game in the month of September was set for Sunday, Sept. 30 against the Ottawa Senators at the Barrie Molson Centre in Barrie, ON.
The cancellation of the schedule was necessary because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL.
