Captain lost to injury

Nanaimo Clippers captain Colton Cyr

The Nanaimo Clippers’ injury woes are piling up – fortunately the regular season is still a little ways away.

The Bulletin has learned that Colton Cyr will be out the remainder of the exhibition schedule after suffering a broken jaw at practice last week. He is listed as possible for the team’s B.C. Hockey League season opener at Powell River on Sept. 10.

Also unable to practice today (Aug. 31) were forwards Leo Fitzgerald and Marc Guertin, both out with minor injuries, and Brandon Rommens, who has missed most of camp after taking a shot off his skate on the first day.

In more positive injury news, Tristan Lowenberger skated today, though the Clippers are still waiting another medical examination on the second-year forward.

Todd Gebert and Kiefer McNaughton continue to rehab long-term injuries and neither is expected back before the end of September.
