NHL lockout: Remainder of Red Wings' preseason games canceled

The final four Detroit Red Wings exhibition games have been cancelled, according to MLive.com's Ansar Khan, as the NHL has wiped out its entire preseason scheduled due to the ongoing lockout.

The league had previously scrapped all scheduled September games, and now the Wings' home contests against the Pittsburgh Penguins and Toronto Maple Leafs, as well as their road games against the Leafs and Washington Captials, are off the table.

Unless the NHL and NHLPA can make some progress in this weekend's meetings, their first since Sept. 12, it appears the cancellation of regular season games is next on the agenda. The NHL season is scheduled to begin on Oct. 11, while the Red Wings are slated to open the campaign on Oct. 12 at Joe Louis Arena against the Nashville Predators.

The Red Wings have yet to release any information regarding refunds for tickets that have already been purchased for preseason games.
