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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
