According to Rogers Sportsnet on Wednesday, the Detroit Red Wings have traded centre Robby Fabbri of Mississauga, Ontario to the Anaheim Ducks with a conditional fourth round pick in the 2025 National Hockey League Entry Draft for goaltending prospect Gage Alexander of Okotoks, Alberta. Fabbri is joining his third National Hockey League franchise after four seasons with the St. Louis Blues from 2015 to 2019, and five seasons with the Detroit Red Wings from 2019 to 2024.

In 68 games, Fabbri has 18 goals and 14 assists for 32 points. He is a -13 with 32 penalty minutes, 12 power-play points, three game-winning goals, 97 shots on goal, 70 faceoff wins, 29 blocked shots, 77 hits, 16 takeaways, and 29 giveaways.

One statistic that stands out is Fabbri’s strong shooting percentage this past season of 18.6%. He had the second highest shooting percentage in the NHL among players who took less than 100 shots. Only Dakota Joshua of the Vancouver Canucks had a higher shooting percentage of 21.4% (18 goals on 84 shots on goal).

Alexander was the Ducks’s fifth round pick, 148th overall in the 2021 NHL Draft. He played his junior hockey in Canada with the Winnipeg Ice and Swift Current Broncos in the Western Hockey League. In addition to acquiring Alexander, the Detroit Red Wings also signed former Ottawa Senators forward Vladimir Tarasenko in free agency.
