Mark Barberio: Signs with Swiss team
Barberio has signed a three-year contract with Lausanne HC of Switzerland's National League, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.
Barberio only appeared in 21 games with the Avalanche this season, picking up two helpers and 16 PIM over that span, so he'll head to Switzerland for more playing time in 2020-21. The 2008 sixth-round pick has likely played his last NHL contest.... See More ... See Less

Barberio had zero points and a minus-4 rating in the seven games prior to the NHL pausing play due to the coronavirus.
The 30-year-old spent the second half of December, all of January and all but the last day of February as a healthy scratch. He finally returned to the lineup Feb. 29, but in seven games prior to the stoppage, the only positive numbers he accumulated were four PIM and eight shots on goal.

Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Summoned from AHL
The Avalanche recalled Barberio from AHL Colorado on Thursday.

Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Headed on conditioning stint
The Avalanche assigned Barberio to AHL Colorado on a conditioning stint Wednesday.

Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Still sitting in press box
Barberio was a healthy scratch in Colorado's first game back from the All-Star break Saturday against the Flyers.
The 29-year-old hasn't played since Dec. 18, as he's sat as a healthy scratch for 15 straight games. It will take an injury to get Barberio back into the lineup. He has no goals and two points with a plus-7 rating in 14 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Remains healthy scratch
Barberio sat as a healthy scratch again against the Stars on Tuesday.
That's 12 straight games that Barberio has been out of the lineup despite being healthy. The Avalanche have now lost four straight, so maybe he cracks the lineup this weekend if the team wants to shake things up, but that or an injury is what it will probably take to get Barberio back on the ice. He has no goals and two assists with a plus-7 rating and 21 shots in 14 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Sitting in press box
Barberio has been a healthy scratch in the last eight games for the Avalanche.
The 29-year-old owns a plus-7 rating and 12 PIM this season. Those numbers are quite impressive considering he's only played in 14 games, but with him consistently in the press box lately, he possesses very little fantasy value. He also has two assists and 21 shots this season.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Has two helpers
Barberio has one assist with a plus-2 rating and eight shots on net in the last five games.
The 29-year-old defenseman has performed well in the plus/minus and PIM categories in limited opportunities, but he isn't scoring much even for his standards. During 2017-18, Barberio posted three goals and 13 points in 46 games, but since then, he has one goal and three points in 26 contests over the last two seasons. He has no goals with two assists, a plus-7 rating and 12 PIM in 14 games this year.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Submits plus-2 rating
Barberio posted a plus-2 rating and two shots on goal in a 3-1 victory over the Flyers on Wednesday.
Since returning to the lineup on Dec. 5 after being a healthy scratch for nearly a month, Baberio has been fairly useful to owners. He has one assist and a plus-4 rating with six shots on net and two PIM in the last four games. He hasn't posted a minus-rating in any of his 11 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Sitting in press box
Barberio has been a healthy scratch the last five games for the Avalanche.
The 29-year-old last played on Nov. 12, and in seven games, he doesn't have any points. He did post eight PIM in his last three contests before hitting the press box, but that probably helped get him out of the lineup despite the assistance it may have been to owners. Barberio has 10 shots on net, a plus-3 rating, eight blocks and three hits in seven games as well.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Still searching for first point
Barberio has no points with a plus-3 rating in seven games this season.
As indicated by the number of games played, the Avalanche haven't always been able to find a spot for Barberio in the lineup, but he has dressed in the last three contests. Even when he plays, though, Barberio has minimal fantasy value. He has six goals, 23 points, a minus-3 rating, 47 PIM, 116 blocks and 52 hits in 99 games over parts of four seasons with the Avalanche.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Not receiving much playing time
Barberio has been a healthy scratch in the last five games.
He's only dressed for three contests this season and during those games, he has zero points with six shots and a plus-2 rating.

Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Back in lineup
Barberio posted a plus-1 rating, two shots on net, two hits and two blocks in a 3-2 overtime loss against the Penguins on Wednesday.
This was Barberio's third game of the season and first since Saturday. Barberio has now played in half of Colorado's games and has posted a plus-2 rating with six shots, two hits and six blocks. With his showing Wednesday, he's likely earned another game in the lineup, but owners must pay attention to Colorado's lineup all season long. If completely healthy, the Avalanche have a ton of defensemen to get into the lineup, and Barberio could shuffle in and out a lot.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Sitting in press box
Barberio was a healthy scratch for the Avalanche's 5-3 season-opening victory over the Flames on Thursday.
The 29-year-old was a victim of Colorado's blue line depth last season, and he likely will be again in 2019-20. Barberio posted one goal and a minus-6 rating in just 12 games last season, his fewest since playing two contests during his first NHL campaign. It will take an injury for Barberio to receive regular NHL playing time in 2019-20.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Back from conditioning
Barberio was recalled from AHL Colorado on Sunday.
Barberio recorded an assist in two games during his conditioning stint. The 29-year-old hasn't played since Jan. 21 and has just one goal in 12 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Headed for conditioning
The Avalanche sent Barberio to AHL Colorado on Wednesday for conditioning purposes.
Barberio hasn't drawn into a contest since Jan. 21, so he will head to the minors to stay sharp down the stretch in the event he's needed. The Avs still have seven other defensemen on the roster, so the club's not lacking for depth ahead of Wednesday's game against the Golden Knights. Look for Barberio to return to the top level after getting in a few games with the Eagles.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Activated off IR
Barberio (undisclosed) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Shifts to IR
Barberio (undisclosed) is on injured reserve, per the NHL's media site.
There are unconfirmed reports that Barberio is dealing with a head injury.

Instead, look for Patrik Nemeth to sub in on the third pair with Samuel Girard.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Mark Barberio: Will return Saturday
Barberio (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Saturday against the Canadiens, Adrian Dater of BSN Denver reports.
After more than a month on injured reserve, Barberio will draw into the lineup Saturday for just the ninth time during 2018-19.

He will look to continue on that path Saturday and will pair with Ryan Graves in his first game back.... See More ... See Less
