Hockey fans now have a chance to profit off the NHL’s ongoing labour woes.

Following the league’s decision Thursday to cancel the first two weeks of the NHL regular season, Bodog, a popular online gambling site, opened up multiple prop bets pertaining to what could be a hockey-less winter.

From Russia’s KHL to North America’s AHL, sports gamblers can wager on whether they think an NHL player will lead their respective league in scoring, or whether this January’s Winter Classic will get canned.

Will the NHL use replacement players at some point during the 2012-2013 season? The site is offering as much as 15-to-1 odds if betters are will to roll the dice.

Check out the prop bets below and give us your take on how you see things playing out.
