ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The National Hockey League season is in jeopardy, as no contract agreement was in place between the league and its players union by the midnight Eastern deadline.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman is following through on his pledge to lock out the players.

Late Sunday morning, the St. Louis Blues issued a statement on the situation:

As you are aware, the National Hockey League and NHL Players’ Association have not yet reached agreement on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Because of this development, the opening of the Blues’ training camp may be delayed and some of our games could be postponed or cancelled.

The St. Louis Blues remain hopeful that a new agreement will be reached as soon as possible and that we will be back on the ice soon. We will be in contact with our season ticket holders, suite holders, and sponsors with plans and options that will be available in the event that games are postponed or cancelled.  Single game ticket buyers may keep their tickets or go to the point of purchase for a refund.

The Blues appreciate your patience and loyalty. We value your support and your passion for the Blues, and we look forward to seeing you at Scottrade Center once a new CBA is in place.
