The National Hockey League and NHL Players' Association do not have any CBA meetings scheduled for the rest of the week, as NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly and the union are in Edmonton through Friday for a hearing with the Alberta Labour Board.

Both sides, however, have kept the lines of communication open and spoke with each other on Wednesday.

Daly was expected to travel to Edmonton for the hearing last week. After the NHL withdrew its claim with the labour board, Daly said he felt the league still had the legal authority to impose a lockout in Alberta

The union disagreed, with general counsel Don Zavelo saying in a statement that he felt it would not be permitted.

Under Alberta law, a mediator must be appointed before an employer imposes a lockout. The NHLPA objected to the NHL's right to do so on the grounds it failed to take proper steps during the process and showed no willingness to work with the mediator.
