Predators' Dante Fabbro: Not contributing offensively
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro recorded his ninth consecutive game without a point Saturday against the Avalanche, skating just 13:15 in the 3-2 loss.

With just 11 points to his credit, Fabbro hasn't done much offensively in his rookie season, but that's probably not what was expected of him. Fabbro currently ranks fourth among Nashville defensemen in both hits (50) and blocked shots (80), so the coaching staff clearly have him focusing on his defensive responsibilities first and foremost. The offense will come, but Fabbro's all-around game still needs time to develop.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Generates helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro notched an assist and five shots on goal in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Canucks.

The 21-year-old is up to 11 points, 73 blocked shots, 78 shots and 34 PIM through 50 games this season. He's earned a top-four role under head coach John Hynes, but Fabbro isn't quite to the level of a viable fantasy defenseman yet.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Knocks in fifth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro scored a goal on three shots and blocked four shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Flames.

Fabbro snapped an eight-game point drought with the tally. The 21-year-old defenseman has 10 points, 72 shots on net and 71 blocks in 48 contests. He skated 24:36 in Thursday's game and has topped 20 minutes in six of his last nine outings. While the offense hasn't quite followed, Fabbro has become a top-four fixture under head coach John Hynes.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Puts body on line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro (upper body) blocked five shots and went minus-2 in 19:30 during Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers.

Fabbro missed five games with the injury, but you wouldn't know it by the way he was getting in front of pucks throughout the game. The first-round pick from 2016 has earned a consistent role this year. He's at nine points, 60 blocks and 56 shots on goal in 41 appearances. With Fabbro back, Jarred Tinordi exited the lineup as a healthy scratch.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Back in lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contrary to a previous report, Fabbro (upper body) took line rushes and will play in Tuesday's road game versus the Oilers, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Fabbro missed the last five games, but he'll get back in the lineup against the Western Conference foe. The 21-year-old has shown flashes of offensive upside, but he's tough to depend on in season-long fantasy formats since he has just nine points over 39 games.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Staying in press box Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro (upper body) won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Oilers, Thomas Willis of the Predators' official site reports.

Fabbro has been practicing, but he'll still miss a sixth straight game. The 21-year-old has been impressive in his first full NHL season, as he has averaged 19:20 of ice time and accrued nine points through 39 games. With Ryan Ellis (upper body) still waiting to return as well, Alexandre Carrier and Jarred Tinordi will stay in the lineup.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Missing Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro (upper body) isn't on the ice for warmups, signaling he won't play in Sunday's game against Winnipeg, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Fabbro was back practicing in Saturday's session, but as evidenced by this news, will miss his fifth straight game while dealing with the upper-body issue. He's likely nearing a return to the ice, but with the youngster sidelined Sunday, Alexandre Carrier is expected to draw into the lineup.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro (upper body) was on the ice for Saturday's practice, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

This is a step in the right direction for Fabbro, but his status for Sunday's game in Winnipeg is still unknown at this time. The rookie defenseman last dressed Jan. 1, scoring a goal in that game to raise his season totals to four goals and nine points in 39 games.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro (upper body) isn't in the projected lineup for Thursday's clash with Chicago,'s Brandon Cain reports.

Fabbro will miss a fourth straight game Thursday and remains without a timeline for his return. Another update on the rookie blueliner's status should surface once he's been cleared to rejoin the lineup.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Remains sidelined Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro (upper body) isn't on the ice for warmups, indicating he won't be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Boston, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

It will be the fourth straight game missed for the young blueliner, who is still without a definitive timetable for a return. As long as he's out, Matt Irwin and Dan Hamhuis will continue to be matched up on the third defensive pair. Fabbro's next chance to suit up is in Thursday's game against Chicago.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Won't dress Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro (upper body) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game in Anaheim.

It's unclear when or how the rookie blueliner picked up the injury but he missed both of Nashville's weekend games. Fabbro has nine points in 39 contests. His next chance to return will be Tuesday against Boston.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Unavailable versus Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro (upper body) will not be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Kings.

Fabbro is considered day-to-day at this time. It's unclear how he picked up the injury, but there should be more information on the 21-year-old's condition prior to Sunday's game against the Ducks. Jarred Tinordi or Alexandre Carrier will suit up for Saturday's game.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Lights lamp on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro scored a power-play goal on four shots in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Stars.

With eight seconds left in Corey Perry's elbowing major, Fabbro put the Predators ahead 2-0. The tally snapped a 10-game point drought for the defenseman, who now has nine points in 39 outings. He's added 54 shots on goal, 50 blocked shots, 31 hits and 28 PIM, but fantasy owners will want to see more consistent offense before adding the 21-year-old to their squads.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Seeing plenty of minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro extended his current scoring drought to eight games Monday against the Coyotes.

The good news is, the 21-year-old Fabbro has played in all 36 games for the Preds so far this season; however with just eight points to his credit (3G, 5A), his scoring has been limited. Still, with an average TOI of 19:02, Fabbro continues to see top-four minutes every game, making him one of the NHL's top young defensemen to keep an eye on.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: One of each in crazy win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro notched a goal, an assist, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Devils.

Fabbro and Nick Bonino assisted on each other's goals -- Fabbro scored in the first period and Bonino netted the game-winner in the third. The 21-year-old defenseman has amassed eight points, 36 shots on goal, 41 blocked shots and 18 PIM through 28 games. While it's probably not enough for season-long fantasy, Fabbro is a decent value option on the blue line for DFS on days with a short schedule.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Supplies assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro notched an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Blues.

Fabbro's helper came on a goal by his defense partner, Mattias Ekholm, in the first period. The 21-year-old blueliner has five points, 29 shots on goal and 34 blocked shots through 22 games. Fabbro's not quite on the radar for most fantasy owners, but the first-round pick from 2016 is a name to keep an eye on for dynasty owners.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Assists in consecutive outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro racked up an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Canucks.

Fabbro is up to five points and a plus-7 rating through 18 appearances this year. He's added 29 blocked shots and 23 shots on goal, but he's not going to have fantasy appeal outside of the deepest formats.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Returns to Saturday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro (upper body) returned to Saturday's game versus the Sharks, Paul Skrbina of The Tennessean reports.

The defenseman was wearing a full face shield after taking a puck to the face in the second period. Fabbro probably won't have to miss any additional time with the injury. The 21-year-old had an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in 12:54 during Saturday's contest.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro (upper body) is questionable to return to Saturday's contest versus the Sharks.

Fabbro took an Evander Kane shot to the face, Paul Skrbina of The Tennessean reports. The incident happened in the second period, and Fabbro did not come out of the locker room to start the third. When he left the ice, he was bleeding. If he's unable to return Saturday, his next chance to get back in a game comes Tuesday in Vancouver.

Predators' Dante Fabbro: Snaps scoring drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fabbro picked up an assist and two PIM during Tuesday's 3-0 win over Chicago.

Fabbro hasn't contributed much offense thus far this season, notching three points through his first 12 games, but he's been impressively steady as a rookie logging over 19 minutes of ice time per contest on Nashville's second pairing. The Predators' blue line is stacked with talent, so Fabbro won't see much time on the man advantage in 2019-20, which will keep him from being a viable option in most fantasy formats.
