NHL cancels first part of exhibition slate

The National Hockey League announced on Wednesday afternoon that its entire preseason slate has been cancelled through September 30.

Training camps were expected to open this coming Friday.

For the Flyers, that means a trio of contests -- against Chicago on Sept. 25, Toronto one day later and against the New York Rangers on Sept. 29 -- have been wiped out.

As of today, the first scheduled exhibition contest will be October 1 at home against the New Jersey Devils.

Additional pre-season tilts with the Leafs (10/2), Devils (10/5) and Blackhawks (10/6) are still on the schedule, per the club's web site.
