On Sunday afternoon, the Canadiens announced that they’ve recalled defenseman Mark Barberio from the AHL's St. John’s IceCaps. He will join the team on Sunday night in Tampa.
Currently in his first season in the Canadiens organization, Barberio sits tied for third on the IceCaps with 20 points on the year – including two goals – in 26 games. The 25-year-old rearguard has played 103 career NHL games, all of which came during his time with the Tampa Bay Lightning between the 2012-13 and 2014-15 campaigns. He amassed six goals and 17 points during that span.
