History

2010-11: Robby Fabbri skated for the Mississauga Rebels bantam AAA team that captured the Ontario Hockey Federation championship.

2011-12: Fabbri appeared in two junior A games with the OJHL’s Toronto Junior Canadiens and was team captain of the Mississauga Rebels midget minor AAA team. He had 3 assists in a regular season game and was scoreless in an OJHL playoff contest with the Junior Canadiens. Fabbri scored 57 goals with 48 assists and had 75 penalty minutes in 60 games for the Rebels. Mississauga captured the championship of the 2012 OHL Cup and Fabbri scored 4 goals with 4 assists and 8 penalty minutes in seven games at the tournament. He was selected by Guelph in the first round (sixth overall) of the 2012 OHL Priority Draft.

2012-13: Fabbri skated for the OHL’s Guelph Storm and represented Canada Ontario in the 2013 U17 World Hockey Challenge. He scored 10 goals with 23 assists and was plus-13 with 38 penalty minutes in 59 regular season games. The Storm lost to Kitchener in a first round series after finishing fourth in the Midwest Division. Fabbri had 1 assist and was minus-1 with 4 penalty minutes in five playoff games. He scored 3 goals with 1 assist and had 27 penalty minutes in five games for Canada Ontario at the WHC.

2013-14: Fabbri skated for Canada’s gold medal U18 team at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament before returning to Guelph and skating for the Memorial Cup-bound Storm in his second OHL season. He was the second-leading scorer for Guelph during the regular season despite missing 10 games. Fabbri scored 45 goals with 42 assists, trailing only Scott Kosmachuk (WPG), and was plus-45 with 55 penalty minutes in 58 regular season games. The Storm finished first in the Midwest Division, leading the OHL with 108 points, and defeated North Bay in the OHL finals. Fabbri scored 13 goals with 15 assists in 16 playoff games and was plus-16 with 12 penalty minutes.

Fabbri scored 2 goals with 4 assists and was plus-2 with 4 penalty minutes in four Memorial Cup games. He had 1 assist and was minus-2 with 4 penalty minutes in five games at the Ivan Hlinka tournament. Fabbri was selected to play for Team Cherry in the 2014 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game. He was ranked 21st amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by St. Louis in the first round (21st overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft. 

Talent Analysis

Fabbri was one of the top forwards for the OHL's Guelph Storm during the team's run to the 2014 Memorial Cup. While his lack of size is an issue, his competitiveness is through the roof, and his leadership skills, along with his offensive abilities are first rate.

Future

Fabbri attended his first training camp with the Blues — signing a three-year entry-level contract with St. Louis in September 2014 — before being returned to Guelph for the 2014-15 season. Now in his third year of junior hockey he continues to pile up points. He attended Hockey Canada's summer evaluation camp and played for Team OHL in the Subway Series. He has an outside chance of playing for Canada in the 2015 World Juniors. Long-term Fabbri projects as an effective two-way center at the NHL level should he continue to develop his all around game and fill out physically.

After so many players were lost to graduation, the St. Louis Blues’ prospect pool looked, for the most part, drained. With a very strong draft last year, the St. Louis Blues have put together a very promising group of prospects at the junior level. Leading the charge is the doubled-headed dragon of Ivan Barbashev and Robby Fabbri, who have helped replenish the center depth in the Blues’ system. Read more»

Last season, the St. Louis Blues looked quite thin down the middle and had very few standout players at other levels of hockey. After the 2014 NHL Draft, the Blues look much better at center with the additions of Ivan Barbashev and Robby Fabbri. They also continue to maintain strong depth at the goaltending position, as both Jordan Binnington and Jake Allen are considered high-level prospects.

While Jake Allen has enjoyed a long run as the St. Louis Blues’ top prospect since Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz graduated, the time has come for the young goaltender to pass the torch. The key additions to the Fall 2014 Top 20 include the Blues’ top two picks from the 2014 NHL Draft, Robby Fabbri and Ivan Barbashev. As new players make their way onto the list, others like Yannick Veilleux, Petteri Lindbohm and Sergei Andronov have been forced to take a back seat in the latest edition of the Blues’ Top 20.
