NEW YORK (AP) – There is still no deal to send NHL players to next year’s Olympics. But all signs point in that direction, and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says “things are moving along.”

Bettman, union leader Donald Fehr and International Ice Hockey Federation President Rene Fasel met for more than five hours Monday at league headquarters to work out a deal that would allow NHL players to compete in Sochi. This would be the fifth Olympics for the NHL.

Not everything has been agreed to and the various sides need to meet internally to sign off on any pact. Still, Bettman calls Monday’s session a “constructive meeting,” adding there are still “some I’s to dot and T’s to cross.”

But, he adds: “I think it’s fair to say that we’re not quite ready to announce it’s done.”
