OHL suspends Storm's Barr and Pottruff

Head coach Dave Barr and defenceman Ryan Pottruff of the Guelph Storm have been suspended indefinitely pending a hearing after a slashing incident marred Monday night's OHL playoff game in London.

Pottruff received a slashing major after he delivered a two-handed whack on Knights star Corey Perry as he broke in on net with six minutes left in the game. Perry saw the stick coming and shielded himself, taking the brunt of the blow on his right leg.

Barr was ejected from the game after linesman Kevin Hastings reported to referee Carman Cox that he overheard the coach say on the bench: ''someone go out there and break someone's wrist.''

The Knights made the Storm pay, scoring three times during the five-minute man advantage en route to a 5-1 win and a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

A hearing will be held in ''the very near future,'' OHL commissioner David Branch said in a statement Tuesday.

Pottruff and Barr were to sit out Game 4 of the Western Conference quarter-final series in Guelph on Tuesday.

Storm Acquire Two Players and Second Round Pick For Girardi

The Guelph Storm Hockey Club announced today that they have acquired 18-year old defenceman Ryan Potruff, overage left winger Rick Steadman and a 2nd round draft choice in the 2005 OHL Priority Selection in exchange for overage defenceman Daniel Girardi.

Potruff, London’s 6th round choice (76th overall) in the 2003 OHL Priority Selection returned to the Knights’ lineup on December 8th, after recovering from a broken leg suffered in pre-season. The Woodstock, Ontario native was drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 7th round of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Steadman, a forward in his fourth OHL campaign led the Knights in goal scoring during last year’s playoffs with 8 goals in 15 games. The Oil Springs, Ontario native had career highs last season with 12 goals and 11 assists.

The two former Knights will make their Storm debut on Friday night when Guelph hosts the Owen Sound Attack at 7:30 pm.
