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

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
