How to remove a damaged screw? where to find replacement one?

While replacing a superdrive with a DataDoubler I sort of damaged the top left corner 10.3 mm phillips screw that holds AirPort/Bluetooth assembly and as result I cannot remove it :( So I stuck on Step 9 of the iFixit guide (MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Late 2011 Optical Drive Replacement).

Any suggestion on how I can remove it and where I can buy a replacement?

Thanks

Do you know whether a set of screws for MB pro 2011 will work for 2012 model? Asking cause iFixit does not sell screws for 2012 models...
