Mark Barberio will draw the short straw as Radko Gudas is expected to return to Tampa's lineup on Friday night in New Jersey.

Barberio lacks for much of any fantasy value, but Gudas is as rugged and physical a blue liner as they come. He leads the team in hits with 91 and PIMs with 34. His hits are also good for 18th most in the NHL.

Mark Barberio will suit up in place of Radko Gudas on Saturday night.

Gudas has what's being reported as a stomach virus, so Barberio will take his place. Barberio has no fantasy value to speak of.

Mark Barberio is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Buffalo.

Mark Barberio will draw in for Eric Brewer against Minnesota on Saturday night.

Assistant coach Rick Bowness noted that this will be Tampa's ninth game in 15 days and of needing to find a "spark" and some "fresh legs". Subbing in the 24 year old Barberio for the 35 year old Brewer ought to accomplish just that as he'll line up next to nearly 24 year old Andrej Sustr.

He logged 13:06 of ice time in a 5-1 win over the New York Rangers. Barberio posted one shot and a plus-1 rating. He has dressed in just four games and has spent most of the early part of the year as a healthy scratch. Eric Brewer took his place in the press box.

Mark Barbeiro, who has been the odd man out on the Tampa blueline, will get a chance to play Saturday night against the Capitals.

He will take the place of the injured Andrej Sustr. However, Barbeiro is not someone you should be rushing out to pick up on the waiver wire.

Mark Barberio expects to get his first action of the regular season Monday night.

Oct 20 - 10:58 AM

The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed defenseman Mark Barberio to a one-year/one-way contract.

In the middle of the NHL draft, the Lightning thought that this announcement was so important, it had to be done now. Barberio had five goals and 10 points in 49 games this season and should be a five-six defenseman with Tampa Bay in the 2014-15 season.

Mark Barberio made his NHL postseason debut in Game 3.

He filled in for Sami Salo, who sat with an upper-body injury. The Montreal-native was a little too wired for the contest and he posted six penalty minutes.

Mark Barberio got back into Tampa Bay's lineup on Sunday after sitting for nine straight games in the press box.

The Lightning dressed seven defensemen in the contest. Barberio returned to being a healthy scratch in Tuesday's win over Montreal, but coach Jon Cooper said it wasn't because of his performance. "I thought Mark played extremely well," Cooper said. "He was jumping into plays, and he probably had a couple of our best chances to score. I thought he was very good at breaking pucks out, and it's good to have guys that you can plug in." Barberio has 10 points and a plus-12 rating in 48 games this campaign.
Apr 2 - 11:07 AM

Mark Barberio has been earning his spot in Tampa Bay's lineup after he was a frequent healthy scratch earlier in the year.

He has also started contributing offensively with three goals and one assist in his past four outings. Barberio has eight points and a plus-16 rating in 34 games this season. He never doubted his ability to succeed at the NHL level, but his growing comfort level has helped him make noticeable improvements.

Mark Barberio can finally get a haircut.

The Tampa Bay defenseman scored his first two career goals to help the Lightning beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 on Sunday and move into a tie for first place in the Atlantic Division. Barberio promised himself as a minor leaguer two years ago that he wouldn't cut his hair until he made it to the NHL and scored there. Now it's time for those shoulder-length locks to come off. "I was just going to let it grow, and I think it's gotten a little too long," Barberio said. "It's got to go, though," he added. "I made a promise."
