Blues forward Robby Fabbri will miss the rest of the season because of an injury to his left knee, the team announced on Sunday.

Fabbri was injured in the first period of Saturday night’s game against Pittsburgh when he was checked into the boards by Carter Rowney. The Blues’ announcement called it an “ACL injury” but did not say specifically whether the ACL had been torn.

The team said Fabbri is expected to be ready for the start of training camp next season.

The 21-year-old Fabbri had 29 points on 11 goals and 18 assists in 51 games this season but had not scored a goal in his last 15 games.

With only one other healthy extra forward on the roster, Dmitrij Jaskin, the Blues recalled two forwards from Chicago of the AHL on Sunday – Kenny Agostino and Magnus Paajarvi, who had opened the season with the Blues.

Agostino, 24, leads the AHL with 60 points, including 42 assists, through 48 games this season. The 6'0, 205-pounder was originally signed by the Blues as a free agent on July 2, 2016. A native of Morristown, New Jersey, Agostino has appeared in 10 career NHL regular season games, all with the Calgary Flames, scoring two goals and adding one assist.

Paajarvi, 25, played in 25 games for the Wolves this season, registering 16 points (six goals, 10 assists). The 6'2, 202-pounder has also appeared in three games with the Blues, scoring one goal, this season. The Sweden native has played in 279 career NHL regular season games, scoring 36 goals.

Both Agostino and Paajarvi are scheduled to join the Blues in time for Monday night’s game in Philadelphia, which begins a five-game road trip.
