Observations:

January 2017 – Fabbro is playing his first season with Boston University in the NCAA. In 18 games, he has three goals and five assists to go along with a plus-7 rating. He was an important part of the Canadian WJC team that won silver, this year. The New Westminster native is a dependable two-way defenseman with an offensive upside. He doesn’t panic under pressure, he controls the play and transitions the puck quickly. In the offensive zone, he can force his will on defenders. His shot is fast, accurate and almost every time he gets the puck to the net. Add elite skating to that and you’ve got yourself a complete package. Niko Salminen

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-

Fabbro has a pretty big tool box to bring to the rink. He basically is an NHL player already. He could arrive to pro hockey next season.
