ST. LOUIS - Robby Fabbri walked into Enterprise Center on the first day of training camp, said hello to the team photographer, sat down for his standard media guide headshot and smiled.
Something was different.
On the bottom-right side of Fabbri's mouth, a tooth was missing that wasn't missing in any of the photos following Game 7 when he was smiling and hoisting the Stanley Cup.
So what happened?
"Near the end of the parade, I was over by the Arch and (Joel Edmundson) came running over, jumped on me and gave me a nice big hug," Fabbri told stlouisblues.com. "His shoulder hit me right in the jaw and knocked my tooth out."
The story is almost too unbelievable to be true.
Imagine this for one second: an NHL player makes it through an entire season with his smile completely intact… then has a tooth knocked out during the championship parade.
"By the time we were done celebrating that day, it was already healed up," Fabbri said.
"I like the look," he added. "I don't know that my mom and girlfriend are too thrilled, but I think I like it."
