McEwan Remains Sidelined
Chatham’s James McEwan remains out of the Guelph Storm lineup, after suffering a broken jaw nearly two weeks ago.
McEwan, who is in his third full Ontario Hockey League (OHL) season, had 8 points in his first 13 games before being hit in the face by a deflected puck late in an October game against the Owen Sound Attack.
“Absolutely we miss him,” Guelph Storm defenseman Noah Carroll told GuelphToday.com following the injury. “I’m not saying he’s a one-man unit, but he can control the play and set the tone for our power play, control the puck and settle it down when we need to settle it down.”
McEwan, a former Chatham-Kent Cyclones and Chatham Maroons standout led the Storm in scoring last season, and attended Pittsburgh Penguins camp this summer.
He’s expected to miss 4-6 weeks, meaning he’ll likely miss the entire month of November.
Guelph currently sits last in the OHL’s Midwest Division with a 7-9-2-1 record.
