NEW YORK -- The NHL and NHL Players' Association resumed informational discussions Sunday before the union was set to meet internally, a source said.
It has yet to be determined whether the two sides will meet Sunday afternoon for a formal negotiating session, the source said.
The two sides had also convened Saturday over a series of conference calls.
After a stalemate during the holidays with limited contact, the league and union began talking Saturday about a new proposal offered by the league Thursday evening. A handful of calls were made between the two parties to discuss a variety of issues covered in the deal.
The NHL and NHLPA had not met face to face in more than two weeks. Since a failed second attempt at federal mediation, the sides had not been in the same room together.
A sense of urgency is mounting with time winding down before the entire season is canceled.
In the league's latest offer, the NHLPA was provided a target date of Jan. 11 to complete a deal. That deadline would allow teams to have a week for training camp before the puck drops on Jan. 19 in what would be a 48-game season.
The league's latest offer also included concessions on contract term limits, salary variance and buyout rules.
Last week, the league was forced to cancel all games through Jan. 14.
