Predators D Dante Fabbro (upper body) out 2-3 weeks


Nashville Predators defenseman Dante Fabbro will be sidelined two-to-three weeks due to an upper-body injury, the team announced Tuesday.

The Predators recalled fellow defenseman Spencer Stastney from Milwaukee of the American Hockey League on Tuesday to replace Fabbro, who was injured in Nashville’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Minnesota Wild on Sunday.

Fabbro, who signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract extension with the Predators on Friday, plays alongside captain Roman Josi as Nashville’s top defensive pairing. Fabbro has recorded 12 points (two goals, 10 assists) and a plus-11 rating in 53 games this season.

Fabbro, 25, has totaled 71 points (15 goals, 56 assists) in 306 career games with the Predators.
