So far, 625 regular-season games have been canceled, including nearly 200 in the announcement made Thursday - the 96th day of the NHL's lockout.

The league had previously scratched all games through Dec. 30. If a new collective bargaining agreement with the players' association isn't reached quickly, another full season might soon be lost.

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in a radio interview on Wednesday that mid-January is likely the latest the sides could go to make a deal to save the season. However, Daly says he expects the season to be played.

No drop-dead date has been publicly announced by the NHL, which is the only North American professional sports league to cancel a season due to a labor dispute. A lockout forced the 2004-05 to be lost.
