ST. LOUIS - Blues rookie Robby Fabbri has four goals in his last five games, including this dandy in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win vs. Nashville.
Long before Fabbri was zig-zagging through the Predators defense, Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock was raving about what a big-time player he was becoming.
“He’s going to be a big-time scorer in the National Hockey League because he gets open and finds those pockets and the puck’s gone,” Hitchcock said. “If you look at his goals, there’s maybe one that the goalie could have saved. All the rest just flat beat (the goalie). That’s pretty impressive. Now he’s up to the pace of the game and he’s going to be a threat all the time.”
In 33 games this season, Fabbri has scored nine goals and four assists (13 points). His nine goals rank seventh in NHL rookie scoring, trailing the leader - Dylan Larkin - by four.
The best part for Blues fans is there's a lot more where that came from.
