BUFFALO, NY - Following a breakdown in negotiations for a new CBA agreement last week, the NHL is cancelling more games.
The NHL announced Monday they are canceling regular season games through December 30th.
Negotiations broke down Thursday night after three straight days of talks at a New York hotel between the players and owners. The league and the union have been in touch with each other since then in an attempt to restart conversations that could save the remainder of the hockey season.
The Sabres are offering the following options to their season ticket holders and mini-pack holders who have purchased tickets for the 2012-13 season:
Option 1: At the end of each month, the Sabres will refund any games that are cancelled by the NHL. For example, on Jan. 1, the Sabres will refund all regular-season games that were cancelled by the NHL in the month of December. The refund process will be communicated to our season-ticket holders and mini-pack ticket holders (via email and/or mail) if and when games have been cancelled by the NHL.
Option 2: The Sabres will offer season-ticket holders and mini-pack ticket-holders 4% simple interest per annum on the value of the games that are cancelled by the NHL.
Ticket holders will be able to choose which option they would prefer.
