    Default Fabbri out for the season

    ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues were dealt a significant blow on the injury front Saturday when Robby Fabbri left the game with 11:18 remaining in the first period.
    Fabbri will miss the remainder of the season with an ACL injury in his left knee. He will be back on the ice when training camp begins in September.

    The 21-year-old forward was hit in front of the Blues bench by Pittsburgh Penguins forward Carter Rowney. He collided with the boards and was unable to get to his feet without assistance from his teammates, was helped to the locker room and did not return to the game.
    Fabbri has played in 51 games for the Blues this season, registering 11 goals and 18 assists (29 points).
    The Blues have recalled forwards Kenny Agostino and Magnus Paajarvi from the Chicago Wolves. Agostino leads the AHL overall with 60 points (18 goals, 42 assists) through 48 games this season. Paajarvi has dressed in 25 games for the Wolves this season, posting six goals and 10 assists.

    Any word on Stastny's condition? With Fabbri out we cannot afford to lose Paul too.

    Stastny injury not believed to be long-term


    There was some concern among the Blues when Paul Stastny left Thursday’s win over Toronto with a lower-body injury.
    On Friday, that concern was alleviated.
    Head coach Mike Yeo said Statsny, who exited in the second period and didn’t return, is doubtful for Saturday’s game in Montreal but the ailment isn’t believed to be long-term.
    Yeo likely breathed a sign of relief upon learning of the diagnosis. Stastny has been on fire since the dismissal of former head coach Ken Hitchcock, racking up six points over his last five games (in which the Blues have gone 4-1-0).
    The 31-year-old currently sits fourth on the team in assists and points, while averaging 19:25 TOI per night, so he’s clearly a big part of the St. Louis attack. And given the Blues have already lost Robby Fabbri to a torn ACL, they certainly didn’t want to be down the services another productive forward.
    Per the Post-Dispatch, there are no immediate plans for a recall from AHL Chicago. Nail Yakupov and Dmitrij Jaskin were the scratches against Toronto, so one of them could draw in Saturday if Stastny can’t go.

    That's a huge relief. The line he was on with Steen and Tarasenko seemed to be starting to click, knock on wood. I liked Hitch and respect him, but I love that Yeo isn't changing lines every other game.

    Guys like Barbashev and Agostino have really stepped up but I am looking forward to getting Stastny and Brodziak back.

    I don't care how we get them... but just keep winning boys! I wish they could have done this for Hitch his last year.
