Blues’ Fab­bri out for rest of sea­son with ACL in­jury in knee

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

ST. LOUIS — St. Louis Blues for­ward Robby Fab­bri will miss the rest of the sea­son be­cause of left knee in­jury. The team an­nounced Sun­day that Fab­bri is out with an ACL in­jury and will be back for 2017-18 train­ing camp. In cor­re­spond­ing ros­ter moves, St. Louis re­called Mag­nus Paa­jarvi and Kenny Agostino from Chicago of the Amer­i­can Hockey League. Fab­bri was checked into the boards by Pitts­burgh’s Carter Rowney dur­ing the first pe­riod Satur­day night and went to the ice. Fab­bri put no pres­sure on his left leg as he left. The long-term in­jury is an­other blow to the Blues, who have lost six of their past eight games to fall out of a play­off po­si­tion in the Western Con­fer­ence and fired coach Ken Hitch­cock last week. The 21-year-old Fab­bri had 11 goals and 18 as­sists for 29 points in 51 games this sea­son. Fab­bri, a first-round pick in 2014, was just eight points short of match­ing his to­tal from last year, his rookie sea­son. It’s an­other dev­as­tat­ing in­jury for Fab­bri, who had a high-an­kle sprain dur­ing the 2015 world ju­nior tour­na­ment. Paa­jarvi and Agostino were re­called for the first time this sea­son. Agostino leads the AHL with 60 points in 48 games.
