TORONTO - Barrie Colts will have to play the rest of the Ontario Hockey League final without Anthony Camara.

The forward was suspended for the series after an open-ice hit on London Knights forward Seth Griffith, who was skating without the puck.

Camara was handed a major and game misconduct for charging Friday, and the Colts went on to lose 6-4.

The Colts still lead the series 3-2 ahead of Saturday's Game 6 in Barrie, Ont.

If Barrie advances to the Memorial Cup, the Colts will have to petition the OHL to allow Camara to participate.

Camara and Griffith are both Boston Bruins draft picks. Camara was taken in the third round of the 2011 draft, and a year later the Bruins picked Griffith in the fifth round.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
