Detroit Red Wings Roster Moves 11/7

Tonight, the Detroit Red Wings will take on the New York Rangers, who currently lead the Metropolitan Division and are 8-2-1. Detroit is coming off a big win over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night, but it may have come at a cost as Dylan Larkin suffered an injury in the second period of the win; he did return and scored a big goal in the third period to tie the game at 3-3. Tonight, Larkin is a game-time decision as he missed practice yesterday. Still, there was a familiar face who returned to practice and skated on a line with the team, and that is Robby Fabbri, who hasn’t played since opening night due to a lower-body injury. Today, Fabbri was activated off of injured reserve and will play tonight against the Rangers; he is expected to play on the third line with Joe Veleno and Daniel Sprong, assuming Larkin plays; if not, the lines may shift. It will be interesting if Larkin does play who the odd man out will be in the lineup.

Robby Fabbri By The Numbers

Fabbri is in his fifth season with the Red Wings after being traded by the St. Louis Blues on November 6, 2019, in exchange for Jacob de La Rose. Fabbri has played in 167 games for the Red Wings, having been plagued by injuries, but he has recorded 96 points coming on 49 goals and 47 assists; he has 28 power play points coming on 16 goals and 12 assists on the man advantage. This season, in the one game he played on opening night, he scored a goal, which just happened to be a power play goal.

Wrap Up

The return of Fabbri will provide more scoring for the Red Wings, and his playing on the third line will provide bottom-six scoring, something the Red Wings desperately need. The one main goal will be to keep Fabbri healthy and hopefully have him for the rest of the season, as the Red Wings currently sit in second place in the Atlantic Division and are trying to make it back to the playoffs for the first time since 2015-16.
