NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly confirmed on Thursday that the 2013-14 regular season schedule will not be released until NHL players' involvement in the Sochi Olympics is settled one way or the other.

To this point there have been talks about allowing NHL players to skate for their countries at a fifth straight Winter Games, but there has yet to be an announcement from the NHLPA, IOC, IIHF, and the NHL itself.

"There has been no final agreement on the terms of Olympic participation at this point," Daly told NHL.com. "And unless, or until, there is, the release of the 2013-14 regular-season schedule would be premature.

"Having said that, we hope that a final resolution on both matters can be achieved in the very near future."

Should NHL players go to Russia next February, the league would suspend its regular season schedule for at least two weeks as it has done in the past.

The Sochi Olympics run from Feb. 7-23, 2014. The preliminary round of the hockey competition begins Feb. 12.
