BUFFALO — The growing potential for an NHL lockout has forced the Detroit Red Wings to cancel their annual NHL Prospect Tournament in Traverse City, Mich., which the Sabres won last season.

The Sabres were one of eight teams slated to participate again in September.

The collective bargaining agreement expires Sept. 15. Little progress has been made during recent talks between the NHL and NHLPA.
