—N-H-L—Hockey is locked out

The National Hockey League is in its second lockout in less than a decade.
The league locked out players after the two sides failed to reach a new collective bargaining agreement.
The previous CBA expired at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Sunday morning.
The last work stoppage caused the league to cancel the entire 2004-05 season.

Owners and players can’t agree on how to split revenue, which was at an all-time high last season.
Players received 57-percent of the hockey-related revenue under the previous agreement, but the league wants to lower that number to below 50-percent.
There are no new talks between the two sides planned.
