The league said in a statement that a total of 422 games, or 34 percent of the season, have been lost to the labor dispute. It earlier had canceled games through Nov. 30 as well as the Jan. 1 outdoor Winter Classic.
The All-Star Game was to be the showcase of a weekend of festivities in Columbus, Ohio, Jan. 26-27. The lockout began on Sept. 16.
