The NHL lockout has claimed 96 more regular-season games and the 2013 all-star game in Columbus.
The latest round of cancellations from the league was widely expected after collective bargaining talks earlier in the week failed to produce a new agreement.
All games through Dec. 14 have now been taken off the schedule.
The NHL and NHL Players’ Association remain apart in negotiations on the allocation of revenue and rules governing player contracts, and currently have no bargaining sessions scheduled.
The league has cancelled 422 regular-season games in total, plus the Winter Classic and all-star game, which amounts to over 34 per cent of the season.
Nationwide Arena in Columbus had been scheduled to host the all-star game for the first time on Jan. 27.
