Barring any setbacks, St. Louis Blues forward Robby Fabbri is expected to be a full participant in training camp after tearing his ACL in early February.

The injury required major surgery and ended Fabbri's season. He's recently resumed skating with several teammates, although they're not yet permitted to make contact, according to Chris Pinkert of the team's website.

"Every morning, I'm working out in the gym," Fabbri said. "That involves a workout with (strength and conditioning coach Eric Renaghan) and doing the rehab things necessary for that day for my body and for what I'm feeling. Right now I'm skating twice a week, and that's just getting started.

"I keep upping the skates every time I go on and listening to my knee with everything to see how far I can push it."

Fabbri registered 29 goals and 37 assists in 123 games for the Blues since being drafted 21st overall in 2014. He's seen as a big part of the future in St. Louis, and is eager to prove he can bounce back from such a serious injury.

"I'm already seeing the improvements from the few skates that I've had," he said. "It's refreshing and it's exciting to get back on the ice and get back to what I love to do.

"I'm confident in myself that I'm going to be ready."
