The Blues were unable to offer any clarity on the condition of forward Robby Fabbri following an apparent lower-body injury sustained in the third period of Tuesday’s 3-1 win over Colorado. 

With the playoffs looming, the Blues are hopeful that the rookie will miss minimal time, but replays of the incident do little to console the worries and head coach Ken Hitchcock said any further update will have to wait a few days. 

With the team utilizing an off day Wednesday, any news will likely come Thursday.

“He’s day-to-day,” said Hitchcock. “We’ll see here. Thursday we will have a further update.”

The injury to Fabbri occurred when the forward was checked in the offensive zone, causing him him to lose his balance. Fabbri’s left leg collapsed awkwardly during the fall.

Though the forward did make it off the ice with play continuing, he did so without the ability to put any weight on his leg. After spending a few minutes on the bench, Fabbri left for the locker room with trainer Ray Barile. He would not return and was not available after the game.

Fabbri has been a large part of perhaps the hottest line in the league since the beginning of March. The trio, which also consists of Paul Stastny and Troy Brouwer has posted 31 points in its last 10 games. Fabbri has eight of those points (two goals, six assists), including a goal in two of his last four games.

"I think it was just a little tweak there,” said Stastny. “But hopefully he will be back. Whether he misses a couple of days or a couple of games, I think we are in a good enough position where we just want him to be healthy.”

In his first NHL season, the 20-year-old has 18 goals, 37 points in 71 games. He is sixth on the Blues in scoring.
