TORONTO -

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly hopes negotiations with the players' association will resume this week as the sides seek to end the nine-day lockout.

Daly spoke to reporters after meeting with union officials on Monday about last year's hockey-related revenue. There were no negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement.

Daly says a new proposal from the NHLPA would spark talks. The most recent offer was made by the league on Sept. 12, the last time formal negotiations took place.

Commissioner Gary Bettman and union head Donald Fehr sat out Monday's meeting.

The sides haven't negotiated since the NHL locked out the players on Sept. 16, but Daly says he and Bettman expect to touch base with Fehr during an alumni dinner on Monday night.

Daly says the league is "100 percent committed" to not missing regular-season games.

This is the NHL's fourth work stoppage in 20 years.
