The tournament was scheduled to start on September 14th.
Chris Botta tweets that the Wings, Sabres, Rangers, Blue Jackets, Stars, Wild, Hurricanes and Blues were set up to play in the tournament.
Helene St. James tweets Ken Holland as saying “Due to uncertainty … we have determined to cancel.”
Botta adds “Consider the work hours lost for Traverse community, along with prospect development, as first cost of the likely #NHL lockout.”
