The Detroit Red Wings had an unfortunate déjà vu moment on Saturday night when the injury-prone forward, Robby Fabbri, found himself on the wrong end of a questionable hit from Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen. The hit, delivered behind the net midway through the game's third period, left Fabbri visibly shaken.

Post-collision, Fabbri not only left a trail on the ice but struggled to maintain his balance, requiring assistance from trainers. As he made his way off the rink, Fabbri remained hunched over, clutching his head throughout the ordeal.
Unsurprisingly, the focus on Fabbri's head was warranted, given that Ristolainen's hit targeted the smaller Red Wings forward high up, a fact reinforced by both the video replay and the visible cut to Fabbri's head.
The incident, captured in a close-up and slowed-down replay, raises concerns about player safety, leaving fans and the Red Wings organization awaiting updates on Fabbri's condition following this unsettling collision.
