Wings Hoping Robby Fabbri Adds More Scoring

“I’m just going to try to come in and do what I know I can do, do what I can to help this team and help contribute right away,” Fabbri said following the morning skate.

“I play fast, I play with some skill and a high compete level day in and day out. Just try and bring what I’ve learned over the years over here.”

The Red Wings acquired Fabbri, a 5-10, 190-pound center/winger from the Blues Wednesday for center Jacob de la Rose. Fabbri, the 21st overall pick in the 2014 draft whose career has been set back by two major knee injuries, had just one point (a goal) in nine games with the Blues, averaging 9:42 in ice time.

“We have opportunity here, a clean slate, and now he’s got to grab it,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “We need more scoring, he can potentially provide that, so I look forward to watching him play.”

Fabbri will skate at right wing on a line with Valtteri Filppula and Andreas Athanasiou tonight. Blashill said Fabbri eventually could play center. He will be on the left half-wall on one of the power-play units.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
