Detroit Red Wings Vrana, Fabbri are on the mend and expected back soon

The Detroit Red Wings are well into their season and have been a very surprising and scrappy team. They have also been bitten quite early, and often, by the injury bug on this campaign. However, within the next few weeks, they are expected to get some added “oomph” to their lineups. Jakub Vrana and Robby Fabbri are expected to come off the injured list within the coming weeks; Fabbri eyeing a return as early as Wednesday.

Why this matters:

The Wings have been playing well, though have had their rough patches in scoring. Adding guys like Vrana and Fabbri back into the lineup is going to give them the added power they need to continue putting pucks into the net.

  • Vrana has been out on the NHL/NHL Player’s Association Player Assitance Program since October 19th. He’s expecting to take the full two weeks at Grand Rapids.
  • Fabbri, who was acquired from the St. Louis Blues, underwent knee surgery and has not played since March 10th. He is eyeing a return Wednesday night against the New Jersey Devils.

How can Fabbri and Vrana impact the Detroit Red Wings?

Both of these players are forces on the offensive side of the puck. In fact according to a CBS Sports Report,

Fabbri is expected to eventually be a top-six forward once he returns to the lineup. Fabbri had 17 goals and 30 points in 56 games last season before his injury.

Vrana, for his part, is an electrifying forward, who according to Coach Derek Lolande is “a natural finisher…one of our top guys.” Adding this offensive firepower back into a lineup that has already produced a surprising start to the season is just what the doctor ordered for the Detroit Red Wings.
