Gary Bettman's players-owners only meeting has come to fruition. The two sides are going to meet on Tuesday without the presence of Bettman or NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr.

"The NHLPA has agreed to a meeting on Tuesday in New York that should facilitate dialogue between Players and Owners. Neither the Commissioner nor I will be present, although each side will have a limited number of staff or counsel present," Fehr said in a statement. "There will be Owners attending this meeting who have not previously done so, which is encouraging and which we welcome. We hope that this meeting will be constructive and lead to a dialogue that will help us find a way to reach an agreement."

NHL Deputy Commissioner said in a statement that the meeting will take place sometime Tuesday afternoon.

Ron Burkle (Pittsburgh Penguins), Mark Chipman (Winnipeg Jets), Murray Edwards (Calgary Flames), Jeremy Jacobs, Larry Tanenbaum (Toronto Maple Leafs), and Jeff Vinik (Tampa Bay Lightning) are the owners that are expected to attend the meeting.
