Blues sign top draft pick; Oshie to make O'Fallon visit

Center Robby Fabbri, the St. Louis Blues' first-round pick in the 2014 draft, signed a three-year, two-way entry level contract with the club on Tuesday.

The 18-year old forward had 45 goals and 87 points in just 58 games for the Ontario Hockey League's Guelph Storm last season. The Storm also won the league championship, with Fabbri contributing a team-high 13 goals and 28 points in 16 postseason games to earn league playoff Most Valuable Player honors.

In 2012-13, Fabbri was Guelph's Rookie of the Year when he had 10 goals and 33 points in 59 games. He also has a gold medal with Canada's under-18 squad that won the Ivan Hlinka Tournament.

Fabbri will join some of the other top Blues prospects for the 2014 Prospects Tournament that begins Sept. 12 in Traverse City, Mich.

* At 6 p.m. Wednesday, Blues forward T.J. Oshie will make a guest appearance at the Global Brew Tap House in O'Fallon as part of the annual KMOX Blues Caravan Tour. The address for the event is 455 Regency Park Drive in O'Fallon.

Team broadcaster Chris Kerber will also be at the event, which gives Blues fans 21 and older a chance for autographs and prizes.
