Pens' goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was part of a delegation representing the players during Thursday's CBA talks with the NHL.
The NHL and the NHLPA continued labor negotiations on Thursday and Penguins' netminder Marc-Andre Fleury was one of the player representatives in attendance. Fleury was joined by 13 other players, including a couple former Pens, who accompanied union chief Donald Fehr in Toronto at their headquarters. The negotiations seem to be stalling out, with many expecting a lockout at this point. Here is a list of the players in attendance on Thursday, via Travis Hughes of SB Nation:
NHLPA head Donald Fehr and advisor Steve Fehr are among those on hand for the union. Thirteen players are also in attendance, according to the NHLPA: Martin Biron, Nick Bonino, Brian Elliott, Ruslan Fedotenko, Marc-Andre Fleury, Bruno Gervais, Steve Montador, Max Talbot, Michael Weber, Mike Weaver, Kevin Westgarth, Dan Winnik and Wojtek Wolski.
Talks with Commissioner Gary Bettman and his cadre of associates began at 9:30 a.m. ET but little progress was made, with the two sides reportedly remaining far apart on economic issues.
