Fabbri inked a one-year, $900,000 contract with St. Louis on Friday.
Fabbri's career has been plagued by injuries, but he's evidently shown the organization enough over the past three campaigns to warrant another contract. The winger saw action in 32 games this season, in which he tallied two goals, four assists and 43 shots on net while averaging 12:39 of ice time. Fabbri is far from guaranteed a regular spot in the lineup in 2019-20 and could find himself watching from the press box periodically.
Fabbri was issued a qualifying offer from the Blues on Tuesday, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
As part of the deal, Fabbri will earn $925,000 as base salary at both the NHL and AHL level. The 23-year-old produced just six points last season in 32 NHL games. Fabbri will still face an uphill battle to crack the lineup on a nightly basis with the Blues, considering the emergence of young forwards such as Samuel Blais and Robert Thomas.
Fabbri (coach's decision) is not in the lineup for Sunday's Game 6 against the Starts, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
It's unclear why Fabbri was scratched, as he didn't have an injury history coming into the game. There will likely be more information following the game, but as of now, Samuel Blais will enter the lineup on the second line in his stead.
Fabbri scored a goal on his only shot in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 1 of their second-round series.
Fabbri has struggled to find a consistent spot in the lineup this season, having registered only six points in 32 regular-season games. He has appeared in the last four games for the Blues, registering nine hits and seven shots along with the goal, but the winger has not exceeded 10 minutes in any of those games.
Fabbri will play on the fourth line during Tuesday's Game 3 matchup versus the Jets, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
Fabbri was a stud in the playoffs during his rookie season, racking up 15 points in 20 games. However, that was three years and two ACL surgeries ago, and Fabbri has struggled to stay in the lineup lately, posting six points in 32 games during the regular season. The 23-year-old will get another shot with the fourth line, which has an occasional scoring touch featuring Ivan Barbashev and Alexander Steen,
Fabbri will play on the fourth line in Thursday's game versus the Flyers, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Fabbri's poor play along with the rest of the Blues performing well has landed the 23-year-old in the press box for 15 of the last 16 games. He'll finally suit up again in the 81st game of the season, bumping Zach Sanford from the lineup. Fabbri has loads of potential but it's been tough sledding after two ACL surgeries, so the Blues are hoping he'll find his game and add valuable depth with the playoffs on the horizon.
Fabbri was a healthy scratch for a fifth straight game in Saturday's win over the Lightning.
The 23-year-old made his return from two torn ACLs this season, and his game still isn't rounded into form. Fabbri has been a liability on defense with a minus-8 rating over his last five outings and no points to outweigh those marks. The Blues are rolling right now, so Fabbri will likely stay in the press box until that turns around.
Fabbri will suit up for Saturday's road game versus the Avalanche, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Fabbri has been a healthy scratch for 10 straight games, and coach Craig Berube has been hesitant to change up the lineup with the Blues on an eight-game win streak. However, Alex Steen is headed back to St. Louis for the birth of his child, opening up a spot in the lineup for the 23-year-old. Fabbri will slot into Steen's spot on the second line with Tyler Bozak and Jaden Schwartz.
Fabbri is expected to be a healthy scratch for Thursday's game versus the Lightning, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
The 23-year-old has only played in 23 of 51 games this season due to a groin injury, a separated shoulder and now his ninth healthy scratch of the season and his sixth in a row. It's possible that Fabbri's still not up to par after his two knee surgeries, but it's surely frustrating to see a pair of rookies enter the lineup ahead of him.
Fabbri is expected to be a healthy scratch for Monday's game versus the Capitals, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
Fabbri returned this season after two ACL surgeries, then he endured a groin injury before separating his shoulder in December. That recipe could mean the Blues are still being cautious with the 22-year-old. Still, Fabbri's production has been unimpressive the last six games with just six shots on goal and one assist. Fabbri's absence will bump Jordan Kyrou up to third-line right wing.
Fabbri will be in action versus the Rangers on Monday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Fabbri was serving as a healthy scratch following his activation off injured reserve, but will rejoin the lineup in a fourth-line role against New York. The oft-injured winger missed the previous 11 games and has seen action in a mere 15 outings this year. Unless he can secure regular minutes, the 22-year-old won't offer much in terms of fantasy value.
Coach Craig Berube said Fabbri will probably play in Monday's game versus the Rangers, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Fabbri has missed 11 games since suffering a separated shoulder, but Berube held him out as a healthy scratch Saturday because he liked the chemistry in the lines. The Blues were bullied 6-1 by the Penguins on Saturday, so that chemistry may have folded. It's still tough to tell where Fabbri will re-enter the lineup, but expect it to be on either the second or third line.
Fabbri (shoulder) was activated from injured reserve but won't play Saturday versus the Penguins, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Although Fabbri is healthy, interim head coach Craig Berube liked the chemistry that led the Blues to a win over the Sabres on Thursday so he'll leave Fabbri out of the lineup. However, he said he'll need to get the 22-year-old back in soon.
Fabbri (shoulder) was activated from injured reserve Friday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Fabbri will provide the Blues with a needed boost to the forward ranks Saturday. The promising young winger, in his third year at the NHL level, has totaled four points through 15 contests this season. He will presumably slot in somewhere on the team's top three lines, though the team hasn't announced who will be scratched in his place yet.
Fabbri (shoulder) is healthy enough to play versus the Sabres on Thursday, but won't be activated off injured reserve in order to preserve the same lineup utilized before the Christmas break, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Fabbri will miss a 10th consecutive game due to his shoulder injury. The oft-injured winger has struggled to stay healthy, which has set back his development as a blue chip prospect after being taken 21st overall in the 2014 NHL Draft. If the Blues struggle against Buffalo, coach Craig Berube will be more likely to reinsert Fabbri into the lineup for Saturday's matchup with Pittsburgh.
Fabbri (shoulder) will accompany the Blues on a three-game road trip to Western Canada, starting with Tuesday's meeting with the Oilers, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
This doesn't necessarily mean that Fabbri will play before the trip ends in Vancouver on Thursday, but the tough-luck winger reportedly rejoined his teammates for a group practice Friday to clear a major hurdle in his recovery. Fabbri's only drawn into 138 games since the Blues took him 21st overall in the 2014 draft.
Fabbri (shoulder) participated in Friday's morning skate, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Fabbri suffered a separated shoulder Dec. 1 and was originally expected to be reevaluated after Christmas. The 22-year-old returned this season after tearing his ACL twice and felt the lingering effects when he endured a groin injury to begin the season. It's appears to be good news that the 2014 first-round pick has began skating again, but there's no reason to think the Blues would shorten Fabbri's recovery time given his oft-injured history.
General manager Doug Armstrong said Fabbri (shoulder) likely won't need surgery and will be re-evaluated Dec. 25, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
Fabbri suffered yet another misfortune when he separated his shoulder in Saturday's game versus the Coyotes. The earliest he'll be able to return is Dec. 27 against the Sabres, but the Blues will likely proceed cautiously with Fabbri, who was in his 15th game since returning from two torn ACLs. The Blues recalled Jordan Kyrou and Jordan Nolan from AHL San Antonio to provide depth in the meantime.
Fabbri (shoulder) once again finds himself on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.
The oft-injured Fabbri was 15 games into his return from a nearly two year absence due to a knee injury and once again has been placed on IR. The club has yet to announce a timeline for his recovery, but he will be out at least until Sunday's matchup with Vancouver.
Fabbri won't return to Saturday's matchup against Arizona due to an apparent shoulder injury, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
Injury issues have unfortunately defined the 2014 first-rounder's career up to this point. Further updates on Fabbri's condition should surface soon, but another extended absence could be on the table.
