2020 Fantasy Outlook
Fabbro played the full 2019-20 season at the NHL level, recording 11 points in 64 outings. He was no slouch defensively, either, adding 85 blocked shots and 54 hits while skating 19:02 per game. The 22-year-old blueliner looks locked and loaded as a top-four option for the Predators in 2020-21, which should see him continue to contribute a little bit in each of the physical categories while flourishing closer to the 20-point threshold on offense. A first-round pick from 2016, Fabbro may not be quite at the level needed for widespread fantasy relevance, but he'll be worth a look in any format counting blocked shots. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Fabbro earned the secondary helper on Ryan Johansen's tally in the second period. The 22-year-old Fabbro set a new career high in points with 12 in just 40 contests this year. The blueliner has added 59 shots on net, 57 blocked shots, 32 hits and 23 PIM as a bottom-four option for the Predators.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2016
After finishing his junior season at Boston University, Fabbro signed with the Predators and appeared in 10 NHL games, including six playoff contests, last season, notching two points and eight shots on goal over that span. The 21-year-old has a ton of offensive upside, and now that P.K. Subban is no longer in the picture, he could be in line for top-four minutes and a spot on Nashville's second power-play unit in 2019-20. Whether that will come to fruition remains to be seen, but the 2016 first-round pick is definitely worth a flier in the later rounds of fantasy drafts this season as a high-upside/low-ceiling gamble.
Selected by the Preds with the 17th overall pick in the 2016 Entry Draft, Fabbro is about as close to being a complete package as you can get for a young defenseman. He's smart, positionally sound, has a high stress threshold, stickhandles well and is a great passer. The only real knocks against him at this point are his shot and his skating -- both good, but not exceptional. Fortunately, these are aspects of one's game that can be worked on. Looking ahead, Fabbro is committed to playing at Boston College this season, so he's not expected to land in the NHL anytime soon. However, Fabbro will also likely play for Team Canada at this year's World Junior Championships, which will provide him a great opportunity to hone his skills. Fabbro is all but a lock to be a top-four NHL defender someday, and a very good one at that. Those of you in keeper leagues, take note.
