HAZELWOOD - Blues forward Robby Fabbri did not skate in Thursday’s team practice at the Ice Zone, but Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock said he expects him to be back on the ice in the next day or two.
“All the guys are day-to-day,” Hitchcock said of Fabbri and defensemen Jay Bouwmeester (upper-body) and Carl Gunnarsson (lower-body). “In the next two or three days, everybody is going to be skating. You can go to the bank on that.”
That’s good news for the Blues, who might have dodged a bullet with Fabbri’s injury on Tuesday night vs. Colorado. Fabbri was cross-checked by Avalanche forward Jack Skille in the third period, then fell to the ice awkwardly. Fabbri was slow to get to the bench, where he was attended to by Head Medical Trainer Ray Barile before leaving for the locker room.
He did not return to the game.
Since the All-Star break, Fabbri ranks second on the team with 19 points in 24 games. Through 71 games this season, the Blues’ rookie has 18 goals and 19 assists (37 points).
