Blues Lose Fabbri For Entire Season

The St. Louis Blues can’t stay healthy – and the season hasn’t even started yet.

On Wednesday afternoon the Blues announced forward Robby Fabbri will miss the entire 2017-18 season after re-injuring his surgically repaired left knee.

Fabbri, 21, had 11 goals and 18 assists in 51 games last season before suffering a torn left ACL on Feb. 4. He was the 21st overall selection in the 2014 NHL Draft.

  1. I would be surprise to see him play like before after the second operation but…Brandon Saad had a really big operation before getting Draft and look at him now…i hope the kid will take time to get in top shape .

  2. Never like to see major injuries to anybody. Regardless who they play for. I wish the kid the best. He is a big time talent in the making.

  3. I don’t think Saad’s injury was a knee though. I wish Fabbri well – hate to see a young promising player’s career derailed.

  4. Is Fabbri, the guy Hawk fans lambasted Stan B for passing on, when he traded up for Nick Schmaltz ?
    Wow, Schmaltz is now a rising star and the poor Fabbri kid has what amounts to an 18 month injury with no guarantee he will ever regain the same quickness.

    Could be a killer injury for the Blues.

  5. Robby Fabbri = Gale Sayers…???

    I echo the comments that no one wants to see a player seriously injured no matter who they play for.

  6. The guy below you was/is the leader behind that march Craig. As always, wait 5 years before criticizing a draft.

    I dont believe Saad ever had an operation on his knee. He was active in the scouting combine in 2011 ranking 3rd in the aerobic fitness test. He also played 59 games in the 10/11 season for Saginaw. He was able to play through his knee injury. It’s comparing apples to hand grenades.

  7. Not cool for any really good player on any team.

    Even though Hoss is older, this is how it felt when you see 81 not playing for entire yr before its OCT.

    They havnt been as good since they were really deep in 16 and were a top 5 team for a few yrs 13-16. Then salary cap, they couldn’t keep that deep of roster for 17 and this guy had that happen then and now again. Man We took their best shot/deepest roster they had in 13-16 and only yr they got us was 16, in that way.

    Not sure if there are any deep teams anymore in whole league. Which is where salary cap actually helps us because it does same thing to other top teams, though they donot have good farms (LA/BOS).
