Panik to Join DeCoste in Belleville

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 Sound’s third round pick in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection, Owen Sound’s second round pick in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection and Windsor’s seventh round pick in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection for goaltender Philipp Grubauer, defenseman Marc Cantin, and forward Stephen Johnston to Windsor.

Barberio Suspended

Today the QMJHL announced that Lightning prospect and Moncton Wildcats defenseman Mark Barberio has been suspended one game for spearing an opponent during last Sunday’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.

Season Totals: 37 GP, 6-25-31, +15, 36 PIM

Barberio scored the game’s opening goal on the power play. He has begun to find the back of the net more frequently recently, though he’s got a ways to go to reach last year’s career high of 15 goals. Barberio began his QMJHL career with Cape Breton in 2006-2007, but was traded after 41 games.

OHL

Season Totals: 27 GP, 11-13-2-1, 3.54 GAA, .896 sv%, 1 SO

Zador gave up at least five goals for the third straight game, and as a result was pulled for the third straight game. Kevin Bailie, who played the last game for Oshawa, relieved Zador, but gave up three goals on five shots. DeCoste, on the other hand, remains hot, scoring for the second straight game. He’s within two of his career high for goals in a season (15), set last year with Brampton and Sault Ste. Marie. DeCoste's goal came against Zador.
