NHL meetings break off after two hours

The NHL and NHL Players' Association have wrapped up their latest meeting.

The two sides met for a two-hour session late Friday afternoon.

NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr left the meeting without answering questions, but said the union "had things to consider."

Fehr also said he planned to hold a conference call with players and that talks could resume later in the evening.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said after the meeting that the league is willing to meet through the weekend and do "whatever it takes."

The sides have gathered for a fourth straight day of collective bargaining talks, the longest run of meetings they've had during these negotiations.

They are attempting to strike a deal that would end the 55-day lockout, which has already forced the cancellation of 327 regular-season games.
