The National Hockey League included neutral site games in the 1992-93 and 1993-94 seasons. The league had expanded the schedule to 84 games to accomidate each team having two neutral site games. The labor lockout of 1994-95 prevented any games from being played at neutral sites as scheduled. The labor agreement ended the neutral site games as the schedule went back to 82 games Three of the cities (Atlanta, Dallas, and Phoenix) eventually received NHL teams through either expansion or relocation. The league has also had several teams play games in Europe at the beginning of the season as part of touring events where the NHL teams also play some European teams.
