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.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
