The National Hockey League announced that all games through Jan. 14 have been canceled, meaning the four-month lockout will bleed into the new year.

The league has been unable to agree on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement with NHL Players Association, which is needed to resume play.  With the new cancelations, the total number of games lost is now 625, or 50.8% of the season.

Time is running out for any hope of a condensed season; if the season is lost it would be its first since the 2004-05 campaign. That year, the league officially put the season on ice in February 2005.
