#57 Dante Fabbro
With the Nashville Predators defensive core taking a hit due to injury, Dante Fabbro was called upon to step up and play big minutes on the Predators top defensive pairing a lot of nights. While he did play those minutes, he did not step up.
Fabbro was essentially non-existent on the scoresheet, recording the lowest number of points for him in his past three seasons with 11.
Last season, Fabbro started to find a little bit of rhythm offensively and tallied 3 goals and 21 assists, whereas this season he only had two goals and nine assists.
Comparing his +/- statistics, the 2021-22 season saw Fabbro be a +13 and this season that number fell to a -4.
For a $2.5 million per year player, Fabbro needs to increase his level of play if he wants to stay within the Nashville Predators organization for the long-term.
Over the last 14 games, Fabbro played an average of 21:57 per night, only had one goal and one assist, and was a -3. While the offense was struggling to score on most nights, there needs to be more contribution from the back end than what Fabbro was able to provide.
