Sides in NHL labor fight meet with mediator

Posted:

NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL and the players' association met separately with a federal mediator throughout the morning and well into the afternoon with no sign that they would return to the bargaining table anytime soon.

Federal mediator Scot Beckenbaugh has been shuttling back and forth between the hotel in which the union is working, and the league office, but as of late afternoon, the sides had made no plans to get together.

The lockout is in its 111th day. Commissioner Gary Bettman has set a Jan. 11 deadline for a deal, which would allow for a 48-game season - the minimum the NHL has said it will play.
