2014 NHL Draft War Room: Prospect Profile Index]




  • Kyle Woodlief from USA Today.com, “We just love his up-tempo game, lightning quickness, smarts, and aggressive play down low among the big redwoods. Nothing deters him.”
  • GM Mike Kelly: “Robby is the most dynamic 17-year-old forward to come through the Storm organization since Jeff O’Neill. Absolutely driven to be an elite NHL player.”

From the THW War Room

  • Eldon MacDonald, THW: A few words on Robby Fabbri:
    • Mr. Forecheck – You just have to watch this guy for his forecheck skills alone; he is that little dog that always gets the bone.
    • Motor – His motor is like one those under-sized motor bikes that is grinding away at full throttle all the time, no matter what the gear or the situation.
    • Skills – Acceleration – excellent; top gear – outstanding; agility – elite as he is so elusive; hands – soft around the net and an excellent passer; shot – quick with an excellent release. Top the physical skills with outstanding vision, desire and you have yourselves an outstanding hockey player.
    • Draft placement – Late twenties or early thirties on most lists; size is the only thing holding him back from going much higher.
