The Detroit Red Wings have signed forward Robby Fabbri to a two-year contract extension.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but Craig Custance of The Athletic reports that the contract carries a $2.95 million average annual value. Fabbri was scheduled to become a restricted free agent this off-season.

Fabbri, 24, was acquired by the Red Wings from the St. Louis Blues for Jacob de la Rose after injuries and a crowded lineup limited his role with the reigning Stanley Cup champions. After the trade, Fabbri found a role in the top six and scored 14 goals and 31 points in 52 games.

He was fourth on the Red Wings in goals, points and points-per-game behind Dylan Larkin, Anthony Mantha and Tyler Bertuzzi.
