The NHL and the players' union tentatively will meet Tuesday.

The location of and agenda for the meeting could be determined Monday.

“Nothing (is) firmed yet,” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in an email.

A lockout, instituted by the NHL when the most recent collective bargaining agreement expired Sept. 15, forced the cancellation of regular-season games, which were set to begin Thursday. The Penguins' opening six games were canceled, including the scheduled home opener Friday.

The NHL has canceled 82 games in all, but it is possible a full 82-game schedule can be played if the sides make headway on a new CBA. The sides remain at odds over revenue. Players received 57 percent of the share on the last CBA, but owners are seeking a higher percentage in their favor.

The league and union have met often since July, but neither has negotiated off a proposal from the other and recent meetings have not focused on the core economic issue.

Owners are not permitted to comment about the lockout, but players have expressed doubt about a quick resolution. However, the Penguins' Sidney Crosby said he didn't expect the season to be canceled.
