Pelletier suffered a lower body injury in Moncton’s 6-2 win on Thursday over Victoriaville. Pelletier had an assist in that game.

The injury apparently isn’t considered terribly serious, but it’ll be enough to keep him away from the camp. And if you’re not at camp, you can’t make the team. At this rate, Dustin Wolf (of the United States) may be the only Flames prospect at the World Juniors.

Even after missing a pair of games this weekend, Pelletier is fifth in the QMJHL in scoring. He’ll still be eligible to play at next year’s World Juniors.
