Guelph Storm centre Robby Fabbri handed 10-game ban for check to the head

TORONTO - Guelph Storm centre Robby Fabbri has been handed a 10-game suspension for delivering a check to the head of an opponent in a game last week.

The league reviewed the incident and announced the ban Wednesday.

Fabbri was given a five-minute major and game misconduct for the play, which occurred in Guelph's game against the Kitchener Rangers last Friday.

Fabbri, a five-foot-10, 165-pound native of Mississauga, Ont., has 24 points (10 goals, 14 assists) in 17 games this season.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
