Nashville Predators’ News & Notes
Fabbro still hopes to play for Predators, unlikely to become free agent | NHL
"I've always said that I want to play in Nashville and I want to be a Predator," Dante Fabbro said during Predators development camp in June. "I honestly don't think it'll come to that, but a lot of things can happen. My sisters went to school here. I have some roots here. My favorite player growing up was Shea Weber, and obviously Nashville was my favorite team. So I have no reason to want to go somewhere else."
Quit playing games with my heart, Dante.
