The Belleville Bulls are reporting they have acquired Lightning 2009 second rounder Richard Panik in a seven player trade with Windsor.
Panik, Austen Brassard, defenseman Paul Bezzo, and goaltender Steve Gleeson were sent to Belleville with Owen Soundâ€™s third round pick in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection, Owen Soundâ€™s second round pick in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection and Windsorâ€™s seventh round pick in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection for goaltender Philipp Grubauer, defenseman Marc Cantin, and forward Stephen Johnston to Windsor.
Today the QMJHL announced that Lightning prospect and Moncton Wildcats defenseman Mark Barberio has been suspended one game for spearing an opponent during last Sundayâ€™s game against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.
According to the league, the decision was made after reviewing a videotape of the incident and after consulting all concerned parties.
