In a year that saw the emergence of a new generation of professional athletes and the end of the lockout, today is an important day for the NHL.
“Today is the first time since we started playing in the NHL that there’s been no game,” says Scott Cawthon, president of the Professional Hockey Writers Association.
“It was the first game that we didn’t have to worry about.
It was the last game that didn’t get televised.
It’s going to be interesting to see what the next few weeks bring.”
Cawthons article is based on an interview that was conducted for this article.
