St. Louis Blues rookie forward Robby Fabbri left Saturday’s game against the Minnesota Wild and didn’t return. It was unclear after the contest whether or not he’d miss any time, but now Andrew Allsman of KMOV.com is reporting that Fabbri could possibly miss the remaining five games of St. Louis’ road trip. From his post:
The Blues could be without rookie forward Robby Fabbri for some or all of the remaining five games on their current six-game road trip. The team is likely to issue a confirmation on Fabbri’s availability before their next game Tuesday in Calgary.
Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock told media following the game in Minnesota that Fabbri had taken an elbow to the head.

Allsman speculates that if Fabbri is unable to play on Tuesday that Scott Gomez or Scottie Upshall could draw into the lineup in his place. The 19-year-old is expected to stick with the Blues after his nine-game tryout, but that appears to be on hold for the time being. So far in 2015-16, Fabbri has scored a goal and been an effective attacker for St. Louis.
What are your thoughts on the Fabbri injury, Blues fans? Are you worried about this particular injury this early in the season? Or is this exactly why St. Louis brought in veterans like Gomez and Upshall? Sound off in the comments and let us know how you see the lines shaking out over the next few days.
