Barrie Colts forward Anthony Camara suspended for hit on London's Seth Griffith

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.

Quote of the Day

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
