He was selected by Guelph in the first round (sixth overall) of the 2012 OHL Priority Draft.

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.

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.
