DALLAS (AP) – Having yet to submit a counteroffer and with less than six weeks before the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement expires, NHL Players’ Association executive director Don Fehr says that’s still sufficient time to get a deal done.

For that to happen, both parties need to stay committed to negotiations and should not resort to “short-circuiting the process,” Fehr said, when asked about the potential of a lockout.

Fehr spoke by phone Monday afternoon from Barcelona, where he met with about 40 NHL players. Fehr didn’t have a timetable on when he anticipated presenting a counteroffer, because the union is still poring over 76,000 pages of financial information the NHL provided last week.

Negotiations resume on Tuesday, with Fehr expected back at the table by Thursday.

The CBA expires Sept. 15.
