Canada's Robby Fabbri suffers right leg or knee injury against Denmark

January 02, 2015 - 6:02 PM

TORONTO - Canada's world junior team has likely lost forward Robby Fabbri for the rest of its quarter-final game against Denmark with what looked like a right leg or knee injury.

Fabbri got tangled up with Danish defenceman Anders Krogsgaard along the boards early in the first period and needed help off the ice.

The 19-year-old winger did not put any weight on his right leg as he made his way down the tunnel.

Fabbri was being evaluated for a lower-body injury and considered doubtful to return, according to a team spokesman.

With Fabbri out, coach Benoit Groulx moved 13th forward Brayden Point up to the second line alongside Connor McDavid and Curtis Lazar.

Jake Virtanen moved down to the third line with Nic Petan and Nick Paul.

Fabbri had two goals and four assists and a plus-7 rating in Canada's first four games of the tournament.
