CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – The Charlottetown Islanders will be without one of its three overage players for an undetermined period of time.
The team announced Thursday that forward Adam Marsh will be away from the team to deal with a “personal matter.”
Craig Foster, the team’s president of operations, wouldn’t say what the reason was or how long he may be gone.
“We’re just kind of taking it day by day. We’re just trying to make sure he has the support he needs,” Foster said. “When he’s ready to play, he’ll be back.”
Marsh, 20, is tied for second in team scoring with 15 points (six goals and nine assists) in 19 games.
The team is considering adding a player to fill the third overage spot on its roster. It could include forwards Will Bower or Dillon Boucher, who both attended camp this season before being cut, or acquiring another player’s rights.
