13 Comments

The NHL announced Thursday that its remaining preseason schedule has been canceled.

On Sept. 19, the league announced the cancellation of its first 60 exhibition games, which included the Frozen Fury (annual LA Kings game in Las Vegas) and games in Boise, Baltimore and Regina.

The latest round of cancellations wipes out the Rangers-Kings affair in Kansas City (Oct. 6) and the New York Islanders-New Jersey Devils game at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center (which was rumored to be dead, now official.)

The exhibition campaign was set to begin on Sept. 23 and run through Oct. 7.

All told, the league has canceled 106 preseason games.
