Mark Barberio might end up playing in Game 4 on Friday.

Matt Carle (undisclosed) is out and it remains to be seen if the Tampa Bay will still go with seven defensemen. If the Lightning do, then Barberio will be the one assuming the vacant roster spot. We probably won't know for sure until right before the start of the game though as the Lightning intend to include 21 players in their pregame warmups.
May 22 - 11:23 AM

Defenseman Mark Berberio and forward Jonathan Marchessault will be held out of the lineup for Game 3 Wednesday night versus the Rangers.

This will be the second straight game Marchessault will sit out after playing in Game 1 versus the Rangers. He’s played in just two games overall this postseason and has yet to get his name on the score sheet with the exception of chipping in three shots on goal. Barberio has not played in a playoff game this year after scoring a goal and six assists in 52 games during the regular season.
May 20 - 8:10 PM

Mark Barberio, Nikita Nesterov and Brenden Morrow will be healthy scratches in Thursday's Game Four tilt against Montreal.

May 7 - 6:51 PM

Mark Barberio and Nikita Nesterov will be scratched for Saturday evening's Game Five against Detroit.

Despite having a goal and two assists to his name through the first four games of the series, Nesterov finds himself in the stands. Barberio meanwhile has no fantasy value to speak of.
Apr 25 - 6:07 PM

Apr 24 - 10:13 AM

Mark Barberio will probably be back in the press box on Tuesday, along with Jonathan Drouin.

Tampa Bay had the same forward lines and defensive pairings at Monday's practice and if they remain intact for Game 3 then Barberio and Drouin will be scratched for three straight games each. Coach Jon Cooper plans to play them at some point, though. "The longer this playoffs go on, everyone's going to get in at some point," he said. "It's just a matter of when."
Apr 21 - 9:32 AM

Mark Barberio was a healthy scratch in Game 1 versus Detroit.

He took a seat in the press box because the Lightning got Braydon Coburn and Andrej Sustr back on the blueline from injuries. Coach Jon Cooper said going into the match that his lineup could change on a game-to-game basis.
Apr 17 - 10:13 AM

Mark Barberio will be back in the Tampa Bay lineup Monday night against Montreal.

With Andrej Sustr out due to an upper body injury, Barberio will be inserted on to the blue line for the Lightning Monday night.

Mar 30 - 6:11 PM

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

J.T. Brown will also miss the game but in his case is out with an injury. Barberio has one goal and five points in 37 games this season.
Mar 5 - 7:34 PM

Mark Barberio and Brenden Morrow will be healthy scratches on Sunday.

The Lightning are in San Jose to take on the Sharks. Neither player has any fantasy value going forward.
Feb 15 - 7:38 PM

Mark Barberio and JT Brown will be healthy scratches in Tuesday's tilt with the Vancouver Canucks.

Through 22 games, Barberio has barely registered on the score sheet. He has just two points, two penalty minutes, and 16 blocks this season. Brown, meanwhile, through 30 games has just five points, 21 PIMs, and 25 hits. Neither have much fantasy value.
Jan 20 - 7:29 PM

Mark Barberio will pair with Matt Carle on Tuesday night against Boston to form Tampa Bay's third defensive unit.

Barberio has a prime opportunity to earn consistent playing time with Victor Hedman out, however he comes in with just one point, and a dozen hits and blocks in 19 games this season. Carle has 13 points, 22 PIMs and 71 blocks through 44 games this season. Both are difficult to recommend for your fantasy squad.
Jan 13 - 6:01 PM

Mark Barberio is hoping to iron out a spot on Tampa Bay's blueline now that Radko Gudas is sidelined for the rest of the regular season.

"That's what happens throughout the season. Guys go down, there's injuries or guys get sick, so that's an opportunity for me to come in and get the job done," Barberio said. "It's unfortunate. You never want to see a teammate go down, but that's part of the game and that's why we have good depth on this team." However, that chance won't just be handed to him, as he will have to compete with rookie Nikita Nesterov and whoever the Lightning may bring up as a right-handed replacement. In 18 games this year, Barberio has one assist, 17 shots, 11 blocks and 12 hits.
Jan 8 - 11:29 AM
