Moncton nearly hit double-digits, but Barberio didnâ€™t figure in the scoring for the Wildcats. Heâ€™s off to a bit of a slow start this year after accumulating 45 points (15 goals) in 66 games last year. A lot is expected of Barberio this season, not the least of which is an NHL contract at seasonâ€™s end depending on his play.
