Detroit Red Wings fans will have to wait a bit longer to see their team take the ice, as the NHL has canceled all preseason games for September.
The league said the cancellations were necessary because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL players association and the NHL.
If an agreement can be reached soon, the Wings will host the Penguins for their first preseason game October 3rd, with the regular season scheduled to begin October 11th.
