Observations:

 

 

October 2014 – Guelph pivot Robby Fabbri has been named to the OHL’s roster for the upcoming Subway® Super Series and will compete in the November 13th game in Peterborough. Since returning from NHL camp and injury, Fabbri has scored in each of his first three games and should push for a scoring role on Canada’s 2015 U20 WJC team. Brendan Ross

 

October 2014 - Fabbri made a big impression at training camp and during the preseason but was eventually sent back to Guelph of the OHL. The Blues possess a ton of size and all-around ability throughout its lineup to help shelter him when he does make the jump to the NHL full-time. There is potential for some big things here down the road. Eric Daoust

 

June 2014 – The St. Louis Blues selected Robby Fabbri 21st overall in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross

 

May 2014 -Presented with the Wayne Gretzky 99 Award for the OHL Playoffs MVP, Robby Fabbri couldn't have finished on a better personal note after rallying off 13 goals and 28 points in 16 playoff games en route to helping his Guelph Storm win the 2014 OHL Championship. Brendan Ross

 

March 2014 - Robby Fabbri was named the OHL Player of the Month for February after leading the league in goals (11) and points (23) in 12 games. Fabbri has been flourishing this season and it won't be surprising to see him rise up draft boards as he prepares for the 2014 NHL Draft.  DobberProspect scout Brendan Ross speaks highly on this dazzling young player, "Fabbri is an underrated player heading towards the draft. He owns top-end hockey sense and a sly ability to find soft spots on the ice quickly exposing defenses when the puck arrives. He's quick, elusive and owns some soft mitts." Brendan Ross

 

February 2014 – Although his smallish frame might steer away some teams, Guelph Storm forward Robby Fabbri is a player who has shown extremely well. He’s got an innate ability to sneak into scoring areas uncontested and strike quickly. Fabbri displays great hands and hockey sense so productive numbers naturally follow him. His skating is top-end featuring quick first steps and elusive edgework, both elements that contribute to his success as an undersized player. Fabbri thinks the game at an advanced level, possesses a competitive attitude and if size wasn’t a consideration, he’d be considered a top 10 pick. Don’t be surprised to see him as a top player years from now as his potential is very high. Brendan Ross

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B+

Extremely gifted offensive forward with an uncanny ability to find open ice. Projects as a top six forward equally adept at playing as a scorer and/or playmaker.
