Robert Fabbri (born January 22, 1996) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently playing for the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Blues in the first round, 21st overall, of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Fabbri won the Stanley Cup in 2019 with the Blues.

Playing career[edit]

Junior[edit]

Fabbri was drafted by the Guelph Storm in the first round, sixth overall, of the 2012 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Priority Selection.[1]

In his draft year, he was chosen to compete at the 2014 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.[2] Fabbri was ranked 21st for North American skaters in the NHL Central Scouting Services' (CSS) final rankings.[3] In the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Fabbri was selected 21st overall by the St. Louis Blues.

Professional[edit]

On September 3, 2014, Fabbri signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Blues.[4] At the conclusion of the 2014–15 season with the Storm, Fabbri made his professional debut after he was reassigned by the Blues to their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Chicago Wolves, on April 15, 2015.[5] He made his NHL debut and also scored his first NHL goal on October 8, 2015, against the Edmonton Oilers.

Fabbri scored his first career NHL hat-trick on December 28, 2016, against the Philadelphia Flyers.[6] He incurred an injury midway through the first period in a February 4, 2017, game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, suffering a torn ACL on his left knee. He was out for the remainder of the 2016–17 regular season (30 games) and 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs. He scored 11 goals and 18 assists for 29 points in 51 games played.[7]

During training camp leading up to the 2017–18 season, Fabbri re-injured his left knee, subsequently missing the entire season.[8]

Fabbri made his return to the Blues on November 1, 2018, recording an assist in a 5–3 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.[9] On November 6, he scored his first goal since December 28, 2016, en route to a 4–1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.[10]

The Blues defeated the Boston Bruins in seven games to win the 2019 Stanley Cup.[11] Fabbri recorded one goal in ten postseason games.
