HOCKEY NHL locks out its players The NHL locked out its players at 11 p.m. Central on Saturday, becoming the third major sports league to impose a work stoppage in the past 18 months. The action also marks the fourth shutdown for the NHL since 1992, including a year-long dispute that forced the cancellation of the 2004-05 season when the league held out for a salary cap. The deal which ended that dispute expired at 11 p.m., and Commissioner Gary Bettman followed through on his pledge to lock out the players with no new agreement in place.
