Wings Sign Robby Fabbri To A Two-Year Contract Extension

08/24/2020 at 2:33pm EDT

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.

Originally drafted by St. Louis in the first round (21st overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Fabbri made the Blues' opening-night roster immediately after his final season of major junior hockey, where he racked up 171 points (80-91-171) in 147 games with the Ontario Hockey League's Guelph Storm from 2012-15, while adding 33 points (14-19-33) over 30 career OHL postseason games. His best OHL season came when he registered 87 points (45-42-87) in 58 games with Guelph in 2013-14, where he was a teammate of Red Wings left wing Tyler Bertuzzi on the eventual OHL-champion Storm. Fabbri captured the Wayne Gretzky 99 Award as the most-valuable player in the 2014 OHL playoffs after totaling 28 points (13-15-28) in 16 games. Fabbri also owns two gold medals representing Team Canada by way of the 2013 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament and the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Selected by St. Louis Blues round 1 #21 overall 2014 NHL Entry Draft
