Observations:

June 2016 – No NHL team loves high-end blueliners more than Nashville, which the Predators proved again by taking this offensive defenseman in the first round. Mark Allan

March 2016 – Dante Fabbro is a gifted offensive defenseman who has shown to be capable of dominating puck possession in his two seasons with the Penticton Vees of the BCHL. Fabbro combines agile skating, lateral mobility, and near elite speed when evading defenders as he rushes the puck up ice into the attacking zone. Deadly efficient on the powerplay, Dante is best when he has the puck on his stick as he can spot team mates with breakout passes and release a strong, accurate point shot from the blue line. Though tabbed as an offensive d-man, Fabbro is also effective in the defensive zone as he is extremely effective in puck retrieval, even under pressure, and is strong in transition. Fabbro is committed to attending Boston University in the NCAA next season. Aynsley Scott

Fantasy Outlook: B

Though still needing refinement on the defensive side, Fabbro projects to be a solid all-around D-man with scoring upside. He is likely to need several more years before breaking into the NHL.
