Penguins center Sidney Crosby and co-owner Ron Burkle are scheduled to be part of a collective bargaining agreement meeting between NHL players and owners Tuesday in New York.
The lead negotiators for a deal to replace the one that expired Sept. 15, however, will not be involved.
The meeting wil feature six owners, with Burkle being one of them, and six players, but Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHLPA head Don Fehr won't participate.
The other representatives of ownership will be Jeremy Jacobs (Boston), Jeffrey Vinik (Tampa Bay) Larry Tannenbaum (Toronto), Mark Chipman (Winnipeg) and N. Murray Edwards (Calgary).
"There will be owners attending this meeting who have not previously done so, which is encouraging and which we welcome," Donald Fehr said in a statement. "We hope that this meeting will be constructive and lead to a dialogue that will help us find a way to reach an agreement."
The NHL Players' Association has not identified the players who will make up its contingent.
