Kulfan’s practice notebook: Fabbri’s reunion with Blues on tap

The Detroit News’s Ted Kulfan filed a notebook article in which he discusses Robby Fabbri’s first game against his former team, the St. Louis Blues, which will take place tomorrow night:

After two full years, Robby Fabbri finally gets to play against his old team. Fabbri was traded from the St. Louis Blues to the Red Wings on Nov. 6, 2019. By this time, normally, would have faced his former squad at least a time or two.

The pandemic changed things. The first year Fabbri was with the Wings, the season was cancelled about a week before the Wings were headed to St. Louis. Last season, the Wings never played the Blues. Fabbri was quick to search out the Blues on the schedule this time around.

“Long overdue,” Fabbri said. “It’ll be the first time playing them since I was traded so it’s definitely going to be a little different.”

Fabbri was hoping to catch up with most of the former teammates who are still in St. Louis Tuesday night for dinner.

“It’ll be nice to see a bunch of them,” Fabbri said. “I’m very excited. I’ve circled this one (game) early in the year. We’ll actually have 12 or 13 of us going to dinner, so they’ve changed (the roster) quite a bit but there’s still a good group there that I was with the majority of time. It’ll be nice to see them.”
