RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Fabbri is on a rocket to stardom – get on board now. The 19-year-old became an NHL regular after Jaden Schwartz busted his ankle last October and the kid never looked back. He delivered a solid 37 points (18 goals, 19 assists) in 72 regular-season games, but absolutely exploded in the postseason. Fabbri finished the playoffs tied for the team lead in scoring with 15 points (four goals, 11 assists) in 20 games and delivered passes with such precision that his veteran teammates just weren't ready to receive them. Fabbri's ascension will continue in 2016-17 – he'll start on the second line courtesy of Alexander Steen's shoulder injury and we just don't see him relinquishing that role. He'll be to the 60-point plateau by 2017-18 and closing in on 70 shortly after. He's just that good.
Fabbri was the Blues' top pick in the 2014 draft, and he's now the team's top prospect. He scored 51 points in 30 games for the OHL Guelph Storm and won a gold medal with Canada's entry at the World Junior Championship, but a high-ankle sprain sustained at the tournament cost him a big part of the year. After his junior season ended, Fabbri played three games with the Blues' AHL affiliate in Chicago, collecting four points. Fabbri has added weight in an effort to make the Blues and have success in the NHL, but the most likely scenario is for him to spend one more year in the junior ranks before moving up to the NHL.
The Blues snagged Fabbri with the 21st overall pick in June’s draft, after the 18-year-old pieced together a 45-goal, 87-point campaign with the OHL’s Guelph Storm. Even though he’s ticketed for another couple of seasons at the junior level, he immediately becomes one of the top forward prospects in the Blues’ farm system. As is typical with most undersized scorers, Fabbri’s game is predicated on speed, and the Blues will bank on his skills overcoming his physical disadvantages. He did suffer a leg injury in an exhibition during Canada’s junior development camp in August, but is generally expected to be ready to go for the start of the OHL season.
