The Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday re-signed defenseman Mark Barberio to a one-year, one-way contract. No financial terms were disclosed.

Barberio, 24, played in 49 games for the Lightning during the 2013-14 regular season, scoring five goals finishing with 10 points and 28 penalty minutes. He was tied for fourth in the NHL among rookie defensemen with a plus-10 rating. He was scoreless in two Stanley Cup Playoff games.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound defenseman has skated in 51 NHL games, all with the Lightning, since making his debut on April 9, 2013. Barberio was selected by the Lightning in the sixth round (No. 152) at the 2008 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
