The St. Louis Blues are keeping Robby Fabbri with the big club for the 2015-16 season.
That’s the announcement that came through on Sunday morning, not that far removed from last night’s 4-0 win against the Nashville Predators.
The 19-year-old isn’t getting a ton of ice time and has only generated modest production.
It’s easy to see some of the lure of keeping him, even ignoring the Blues’ rash of injuries.
Fabbri brings something the hard-working Blues need: creativity.
Apparently he’s well-liked too, at least judging by this frankly adorable video of Fabbri getting the news on the team flight.
Could he develop into the missing ingredient by that elusive playoff time?
