CALGARY - Blues forward Robby Fabbri has been diagnosed with a concussion. No timeline for his return has been set.
Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock provided the update after Monday’s practice at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary.
According to Hitchcock, Fabbri took an elbow to the head in Saturday’s game against the Minnesota Wild. He left in the first period and did not return.
“We’re going to miss Robby,” Hitchcock said. “I was surprised on the concussion because he had three great shifts after the concussion. We’re going to miss his spunk, but (Scottie Upshall and Scott Gomez) will be excellent replacements.”
Fabbri, a 19-year-old native of Mississauga, Ontario, scored his first career goal in his NHL debut on Oct. 8 in Edmonton. The goal stood as the game-winner.
Fabbri was selected by the Blues in the first round (No. 21 overall) at the 2014 NHL Draft.
