The NHL has cancelled more games and the 2013 All-Star Game as a result of the ongoing labor dispute between the league and the Players' Association.
Games through Dec.14, in addition to the NHL All-Star Weekend originally scheduled for Jan. 26-27 in Columbus, Ohio, are off.
A total of 422 regular season games have now been cancelled due to the labor dispute. The league has been in a lockout since the previous labor deal expired Sept. 15. The two sides met twice on Wednesday but remain at a standstill.
From the Sabres' official site, information on ticket refunding:
The Sabres will continue to maintain contact with all season-ticket holders and mini-pack holders regarding the work stoppage and ticket refunds due to missed games. As previously communicated, the Sabres will offer the following options to our season ticket holders and mini pack holders who have purchased tickets for the 2012-13 season:
Option 1: At the end of each month, the Sabres will refund any games that are cancelled by the NHL. For example, on Jan. 1, the Sabres will refund all regular-season games that were cancelled by the NHL in the month of December. The refund process will be communicated to our season-ticket holders and mini-pack ticket holders (via email and/or mail) if and when games have been cancelled by the NHL.
Option 2: The Sabres will offer season-ticket holders and mini-pack ticket-holders 4% simple interest per annum on the value of the games that are cancelled by the NHL.
Ticket holders will be able to choose which option they would prefer.
Fans that have purchased individual game tickets will be automatically credited for all games that have been cancelled.
