The Philadelphia Flyers have some dedicated fans, despite the ongoing NHL lockout.

The Philadelphia Flyers have only lost 12 season ticket holders due to the NHL lockout, which was enacted by the league after failing to ratify a new collective bargaining agreement with the NHL Players Association on Sept. 15.

In total, the organization reports that they have a total of 18,200 season ticket holders. According to Lyle Richardson of Spector's Hockey, the overwhelming statistic is proving to the owners that the lockout will not hurt fan support.

As of Monday, the NHL and NHLPA are still divided on key issues, most notably core economics and defining hockey -related revenue. In a general sense, the two sides are both interested in helping small-market teams remain financially viable. However, each side has a different perspective as to how to achieve that goal. The players want to increase revenue sharing, while the owners want to cut players' salaries.

According to Darren Dreger of TSN, collective bargaining negotiations are scheduled to resume on Tuesday in Toronto.
