|PLAYER INVITED TO TALKS|
At least one prominent player was invited to join Wednesday's discussions between the NHL and the NHLPA in New York, ESPN's Darren Pang has learned.
The player was invited Tuesday evening, after the day's meetings had concluded. While there is speculation the PA may have summoned players to participate in the "sub-issues" negotiations, it's likely his attendance is in relation to the formation of a competition committee, which would need to be included in a new CBA.
