Impending RFA winger Robby Fabbri signs for two years, $2.95 million per with the Red Wings.

Is he a good comp for Kevin Labanc? Like Labanc, Fabbri is a 24-year-old offense-first RFA winger — neither team is using them on the PK — though Detroit is experimenting with him at center.

For what it’s worth, Labanc’s career-high is 56 points, while Fabbri’s is just 37. On the other hand, Fabbri has draft pedigree — he’s a 2014 first-round draft pick — and Steve Yzerman has cap space to burn, unlike Doug Wilson. (Detroit Free Press)

Fabbri gets deployed as a top 6 while Labanc gets deployed as a top 8. isolated impacts just aren’t even close, except in xGA/60. otherwise, Labanc rules. i guess you could use Fabbri (even though he’s listed as a center) as a jumping off point, but i wouldn’t consider him a true comp. we have to factor in Fabbri’s time away due to injury no… Read more »

He was also a top-four defenseman for Winnipeg in 2019-20, albeit not a particularly good top-four defender.
