Barberio Breaking Out

Lightning 2008 sixth round pick Mark Barberio was featured today in the Moncton paper:

When the Moncton Wildcats acquired Mark Barberio in a trade midway through 2006-07, he was known as a defensive defenceman. But it seems his identity has changed since then.

He began to take on a new look last season when he was the surprise runnerup in team scoring with 46 points, including 11 goals, in 70 games. That made him the ninth-highest scoring defenceman in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Barring injury, he will likely surpass those statistics this season and move into the top five in Wildcats career scoring for a defenceman. He has 11 points, including four goals, in 11 games.

"I don't want to be branded as somebody who's only a defensive defenceman or only an offensive defenceman,'' said Barberio. "I like to consider myself an all-around defenceman.

D Mark Barberio, MON: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

St. John Sea Dogs 3 @ Moncton Wildcats 2 (OT)
D Mark Barberio, MON: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (delay of game), 1 SOG

Barberio feathered a cross-ice pass described as “unbelievable” to set up the game tying goal, but while shorthanded in the closing minutes of the third period inadvertently lifted a clearing attempt over the glass to earn a delay of game penalty. St. John scored the winner in overtime late in Barberio’s penalty. This was Moncton’s first loss of the year.

Lewiston MAINEiacs 7 @ Halifax Mooseheads 3
D Michael Ward, LEW: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
