  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Supplies pair of assists

    Fabbro notched two assists, two hits, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.

    Fabbro snapped a five-game point drought with the pair of helpers. Sunday's effort doubled his point total in 2024. The 25-year-old defenseman has two goals, 10 helpers, 51 shots on net, 43 hits, 71 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating through 46 appearances. Fabbro has exceeded the 11 points he recorded in 79 outings a season ago, but he's only worth streaming in DFS when he's paired with Roman Josi.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Gets rare start Saturday

    Fabbro returned from a three-game stint as a healthy scratch in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blues, but he failed to crack the scoresheet in 17:09 of ice time.

    Fabbro's presence in the lineup is too unpredictable these days to count on him for fantasy production. Throw in his low scoring totals (2G, 8A in 42 games), and it's really hard to recommend him outside of very deep leagues. The 25-year-old defender posted a career-best 24 points two seasons ago, but it's difficult to imagine him getting back to that level anytime soon.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Nabs assist in shootout win

    Fabbro produced an assist in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Capitals.

    Fabbro had gone four games without a point, and he has just three helpers over 10 outings in December. The 25-year-old has found steadier playing time with Tyson Barrie (upper body) unavailable since the holiday break ended. Fabbro should be able to hold onto a third-pairing role for a while. He's at eight points, 31 shots on net, 21 hits, 43 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating over 28 appearances -- that's not enough offense to create much intrigue in fantasy.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Scoring woes continue

    Fabbro failed to crack the scoresheet in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Rangers, his third game back in the lineup following a three-game absence as a healthy scratch.

    Fabbro recorded a career-high 24 points two seasons ago with the Preds but took a step back last season with just 11 points in 79 games. With just five points in 19 games this season, Fabbro doesn't move the fantasy needle enough to warrant much consideration outside of deeper leagues.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: One of each in loss

    Fabbro scored a goal on two shots and added an assist in the Predators' 7-5 loss to the Coyotes on Saturday.

    Fabbro scored off a one-timer in the slot to give the Predators a 3-2 lead. He also collected an assist on Filip Forsberg's second goal. Fabbro had been struggling offensively before Saturday's game, scoring just two points in his first 12 games. Saturday's performance snapped a four-game pointless drought and gave him his first points in November. Fabbro should continue to see minutes on the top pairing.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Deposits goal in loss

    Fabbro scored a goal in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks.

    Fabbro put the Predators ahead 2-1 just 30 seconds after Colton Sissons tied the game in the first period. The goal was Fabbro's second point of the campaign. The 25-year-old has seen steady run in the lineup with the absence of Luke Schenn (lower body). Fabbro has eight shots on net, nine hits, 17 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating while seeing top-four minutes at even strength.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Back on scoresheet

    Fabbro delivered an assist and three blocked shots in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Sharks.

    Fabbro is situated in a top-four role early this season, but he lacks power-play utility as well as the type of offensive firepower that fantasy managers require. The helper was Fabbro's first point through five games, and the 2016 first-round draft pick is averaging just one shot per contest. He's asked to fill a defensive role while skating on a pairing with the highly productive Roman Josi, who dropped 155 points over the last two seasons alone.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Contributes goal vs. Carolina

    Fabbro tallied a goal in Nashville's 3-0 win over Carolina on Thursday.

    It was Fabbro's second marker and 11th point in 75 contests this season. He didn't record a point over his previous four outings, though he did have five shots, eight hits and nine blocks in that span. Fabbro also had three hits and three blocks Thursday, bringing him up to 102 and 117, respectively. That's well above the 24-year-old's previous career highs of 69 hits and 105 blocks, which he set in 2021-22.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Supplies power-play helper

    Fabbro produced a power-play assist, three shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Ducks.

    Fabbro's most notable contribution in the last two months was signing a one-year contract extension March 3. On the ice, he'd gone 21 games without a point entering Sunday, but he was able to put that slump to rest when he set up Philip Tomasino on the opening tally. Fabbro's taken a noticeable step backwards in 2022-23 with one goal and eight helpers through 61 outings. He's managed 89 blocked shots, 77 hits, 80 shots on net, 38 PIM and a plus-1 rating, and Fabbro's still in the mix to see top-four minutes alongside Roman Josi on occasion.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Agrees to one-year extension

    Fabbro signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract extension with Nashville on Friday, per Jeff Marek of Sportsnet.

    Fabbro has a goal, eight points, 36 PIM, 71 hits and 83 blocks in 56 contests while averaging 16:04 of ice time this season. The 24-year-old is playing through the final season of a two-year, $4.8 million contract. Before signing the extension, Fabbro was eligible to become a restricted free agent this summer.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Pointless streak continues

    Fabbro was a plus-3 and had three blocked shots in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Sharks, but he failed to crack the scoresheet for the 14th straight game.

    With a career-high 24 points last season, the 24-year-old Fabbro appeared to be developing offensively on the Preds' blue line. However, following the addition of Ryan McDonagh during the offseason, Fabbro has been skating on the third pairing and averaging three fewer minutes of ice time compared to last year (16:03 vs. 19:03). Unsurprisingly, his offensive totals have taken a hit, with just one goal and seven assists in 53 games. Fabbro's still worth keeping an eye on, but he isn't worth a roster spot on your fantasy squad at this time.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Snags assist in Saturday's loss

    Fabbro notched an assist and blocked two shots in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Sabres.

    Fabbro had a shot tipped in by Ryan Johansen to tie the game at 3-3 in the second period. This was Fabbro's first helper through five appearances in January, though he was a healthy scratch for a couple of contests to begin the month. The 24-year-old blueliner has struggled to generates offense this season with one goal, seven assists, 53 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in 39 outings. He's added 60 blocked shots and 49 hits, providing some physical play in a bottom-four role.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Adds rare helper Saturday

    Fabbro notched an assist in Saturday's overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    Now with just seven points on the season (1G, 6A), Fabbro continues to regress from the career-high 24 points he posted last season. Unfortunately for him, the offseason addition of Ryan McDonagh has pushed Fabbro down the Preds' depth chart, resulting in reduced ice time and fewer opportunites to contribute offensively.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Finds back of net Tuesday

    Fabbro scored a goal in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Edmonton.

    Fabbro's marker came at 9:53 of the second period and narrowed Edmonton's lead to 4-3. It was his first goal and fifth point in 26 contests this season. He entered the game averaging 16:20 of ice time, but logged 18:48 on Tuesday. There's an opportunity for Fabbro to play an expanded role for now because Jeremy Lauzon (upper body), Alexandre Carrier (upper body) and Ryan McDonagh (upper body) all recently joined Mark Borowiecki (upper body) on the Predators' list of unavailable defensemen.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Struggling offensively

    Fabbro extended his current scoring drought to eight games Saturday against the Senators.

    Fabbro enjoyed a career-high 24-point season last year, but he's taken a step back so far this year. With just four assists in 24 games, he'll be lucky to crack the 15-point mark given his current pace. It's worth noting, however, that Fabbro's ice time has fallen by nearly three minutes per game this year (16:10 vs. 19:03 last year), so that may be part of the problem. He's currently skating on the third defensive pairing with Jeremy Lauzon.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Slides helper in loss

    Fabbro posted an assist and two blocked shots in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    Fabbro set up defense partner Roman Josi for a goal in the third period. This was Fabbro's second assist in three contests since he sat out a game as a healthy scratch, so he clearly received the message sent from head coach John Hynes. The 24-year-old blueliner has three assists, 19 hits, 16 blocked shots, 16 shots on net, eight PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 13 appearances.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Rejoins lineup, earns assist

    Fabbro posted an assist and three hits in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks.

    Fabbro was scratched for Thursday's game in Calgary amid his nine-game point drought. He rejoined the lineup Saturday with Alexandre Carrier taking his place in the press box, and Fabbro responded to the benching with an assist on Nino Niederreiter's game-tying tally in the third period. The helper was Fabbro's first since Opening Night. He's added 15 shots on net, 18 hits, 12 blocked shots, eight PIM and a minus-1 rating through 11 appearances, but head coach John Hynes' recent roster decisions suggest the Predators' fringe blueliners will need to be at their best to stick in the lineup.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Pockets assist in win

    Fabbro registered an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

    Fabbro set up newcomer Nino Niederreiter's first Predators goal in the second period. Last year was a breakout season for Fabbro, who registered 24 points and a plus-13 rating in 66 contests while averaging 19:03 of ice time per game. He may see a slightly reduced role in 2022-23 with the addition of Ryan McDonagh in a trade from the Lightning, but Fabbro should be a top option to fill a spot in the top four should injuries arise.

  • Predators' Dante Fabbro: Generates assist Friday

    Fabbro posted an assist, three blocked shots, two hits, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Coyotes.

    Fabbro picked up five points in the last eight games of the season. The 23-year-old defenseman has served as a more defensive presence alongside Roman Josi for parts of this season, and they'll likely open the playoffs as a pairing. Fabbro recorded 24 points, 88 shots on net, 105 blocked shots and 69 hits in 66 outings in the regular season.
