NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL has canceled more games while holding out hope it can squeeze in a full regular-season schedule.

A day after the league turned down three counterproposals from players, the NHL wiped out the third week of the season on Friday.

A total of 135 games through November 1 have been canceled, which amounts to 11 percent of the season.

In its third lockout since 1994, the NHL is sticking to its most recent proposal that stated a full 82-game-per-team schedule could be played if the season begins by November 2. The league says a deal must be reached with the union by Thursday for that to happen.

Two weeks ago, the league called off 82 games from October 11- 24, and another 53 were canceled Friday.

No new talks have been scheduled.
