NEW YORK -- Negotiations toward a new Collective Bargaining Agreement resumed Tuesday at an undisclosed location in New York City and will continue Wednesday, according to NHL and NHLPA representatives.
The meeting Tuesday lasted approximately seven hours.
"Collective bargaining negotiations between the National Hockey League and representatives of the National Hockey League's Players' Association recessed tonight at 10:15 pm.," NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said. "With meetings scheduled to resume Wednesday, the League will not characterize the substance or detail of the discussions until their conclusion."
The negotiating session Tuesday was the second face-to-face session between the two sides in four days after going more than two weeks without meeting.
Daly also met one-on-one with NHLPA Special Counsel Steve Fehr for several hours on Saturday.
The NHL and NHLPA have been without a CBA since Sept. 15.
The League has already cancelled the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through Nov. 30, as well as the 2013 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, which was originally scheduled for Jan. 1.
