DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings today signed forward Robby Fabbri to a two-year contract extension.
Fabbri, 24, was acquired in a trade with the St. Louis Blues on Nov. 6, 2019 in exchange for center Jacob de la Rose and logged 31 points (14-17-31) and 18 penalty minutes in 17:16 average ice time over 52 games for Detroit. He notched six multi-point games since the acquisition, including a two-goal game in his Red Wings debut on Nov. 8 to become the seventh player in franchise history to score twice in his team debut and the second over the last 34 years. A native of Mississauga, Ontario, Fabbri has recorded 104 points (46-58-104) and 78 penalty minutes in 216 NHL games between St. Louis and Detroit since entering the league. Fabbri ranked seventh on the Blues in points as a rookie in 2015-16, accumulating 37 points (18-19-37) in 72 regular-season games and tying for the team lead in postseason scoring with 15 points (4-11-15) in 20 games during the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Limited to 83 games over the next three seasons due to injury - including missing the entire 2017-18 campaign - Fabbri was a member of the Blues' 2019 Stanley Cup championship run, contributing six points (2-4-6) in 32 regular-season games and adding a goal over his 10 playoff appearances that spring.
