    Haven’t found much on this yet, but I listened to the Barrie game & Scheifele must be fairly badly injured. He was hit 2 minutes into the third & was in the dressing room onward from that point. He did return with under a minute left in the game & was on the ice for the tying goal, but he remained in the dressing room for overtime. In the OHL finals in overtime to win it all & go to the Memorial Cup, remaining in the dressing room is NOT a good sign. Hardly a spec of news anywhere on this.
