Red Wings send de la Rose to Blues for 2014 first-rounder Fabbri
The Red Wings made another move to find offense late Wednesday night.
They traded forward Jacob de la Rose to the St. Louis Blues for forward Robby Fabbri.
De la Rose, 24, was acquired on waivers last season but never found a permanent home in the Wings lineup.
In 16 games this season, de la Rose had a goal and three assists, while mainly centering the fourth line.
In Fabbri, the Wings are getting an offensive forward who seemingly hasn’t yet reached his potential.
Fabbri, 23, was a 2014 first-round pick of the Blues.
In four seasons with St. Louis, Fabbri (5-foot-10, 190-pounds), a center, had 73 points (32 goals, 41 assists) in 164 games. Fabbri has also played in 30 playoff games, including 10 last season, with one goal.
This season, Fabbri has one goal and no assists in nine games with the Blues, with a minus-4 rating.
