Mayor Coleman's Statement on NHL Lockout
Mayor Coleman made the following statement in response to the announcement of additional canceled games due to the NHL lockout:
"I am extremely disappointed that the NHL and the NHLPA are still unable to reach a labor agreement to save what is left of the 2012-2013 NHL season. We know with certainty that the lockout has already resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue for businesses in downtown Saint Paul, many of whom rely very heavily on hockey season to make ends meet. The time to end the lockout is now. I urge both sides to reach an agreement when they meet with the federal mediator."
