Union responds to latest NHL offer in labor talks

NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL players' association has delivered its latest counteroffer to the league as the two sides try to resolve the lockout.

The union and the NHL could meet again later Wednesday after the league looks over the proposal.

The NHL had presented the players with a counteroffer Tuesday night.

Commissioner Gary Bettman said Monday that the league had told the union a deal needs to be in place by Jan. 11 so a 48-game season can begin eight days later. All games through Jan. 14 have been canceled, claiming more than 50 percent of the original schedule.
