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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
