Toronto, ON – The Ontario Hockey League today announced that 2014 NHL Draft prospect Robby Fabbri of the Guelph Storm is the OHL Player of the Week for the playoff week ending April 13 after recording seven points in three games including four goals and three assists with a plus-minus rating of plus-5.

Fabbri helped lead the Storm to a five-game series win over the London Knights in the OHL’s Western Conference Semi-Finals with three multi-point performances last week.  He scored two goals including the game-winner as first star of the Storm’s 4-2 victory on the road in Game 3 of the series last Tuesday night, then picked up a goal and two assists on Thursday as third star of the 6-3 victory in Game 4.  Leading the series 3-1 and playing on home ice in Game 5 on Friday, Fabbri scored the game-tying goal and assisted on Scott Kosmachuk’s game-winner to lift the Storm to a 5-4 victory.  The Storm will now play in the Rogers Western Conference Championship Series where they will look to capture the Wayne Gretzky Trophy for the first time since 2004 up against the Erie Otters beginning on Thursday night in Guelph.

Fabbri, an 18-year-old from Mississauga, ON, is playing in his second OHL season with the Storm.  Selected sixth overall in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection, Fabbri is now a top NHL Draft prospect eligible in 2014 and listed 21st overall by NHL Central Scouting in their Final Draft Rankings released last week.  Fabbri has nine points in six playoff games after finishing tied for 14th in league scoring during the regular season with 45 goals and 42 assists for 87 points in 58 games played.
