NHL & NHLPA back to the boardroom on Thursday

The NHL and NHL Players' Association will resume collective bargaining negotiations on Thursday and Friday in Toronto. 
Sources told TSN it doesn't look as though NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will be called to the U.S. Congressional hearings on the use of steroids in sports on Thursday, so the league can proceed with its originally scheduled negotiating session with the NHLPA.  Sources say two more bargaining sessions are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday (May 9 and 10) of next week in New York City before representatives from both sides go to Austria for the world championship. No meetings are currently scheduled to take place in Austria, but the two sides are slated to get back together again May 18 and 19 in Toronto.  The NHLPA has scheduled a membership meeting, where hundreds of players are expected to attend, for May 24 in Toronto.
