The NHL has announced the cancellation of its 2012-13 regular season schedule through Oct. 24. Dallas Stars fans will lose the team's first two scheduled home games.

The NHL announced that it will be canceling regular season games through Oct. 24 because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the league and the NHL Players Association.

The announcement, which comes a week after the league announced the cancellation of the entire preseason, will span from Oct. 11 to Oct. 24 and cost the league 82 scheduled games and roughly $100 million in revenue.

Dallas Stars fans will lose two of the team's home games as a result of the cancellations. The team's home opener against the Phoenix Coyotes on Oct. 16 and the Oct. 18 game against the Minnesota Wild have been axed. Barring any further cancellations, the Stars would play their home opener against the Vancouver Canucks at American Airlines Arena on Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. CT.

The league and the NHLPA are not scheduled to meet again until next week, and with negotiations progressing slowly if at all, it's possible that we'll see further cancellations.
