Group of NHL owners, players to meet without leaders

NEW YORK — Traditional labor talks have made little progress in the ongoing NHL lockout, so the league and the players’ association are going to try something different in an attempt to save the season.

A crew of six owners will meet with a handful of players on Tuesday in New York — one day before the league’s board of governors meeting — without commissioner Gary Bettman and union executive director Donald Fehr. Bettman proposed the unique meeting on Wednesday when talks broke off following two days of negotiations with federal mediators, and it wasn’t agreed to until Sunday.
