Fantasy Summary

A gritty winger with scoring upside. Potential for added value in leagues that reward hits and penalty minutes.

September 2019 – Gabrielle was placed on unconditional waivers to terminate his contract, by the Bruins as the two look to part ways moving forward. Pat Quinn

 

April 2019 – Gabrielle spent the entire season playing in the ECHL, notching 21 points through 36 games split between the Atlanta Gladiators and Wichita Thunder. He also chipped in 40 penalty minutes, but held a rating of minus-22. While Gabrielle has shown the ability to produce offensively in the past, it is becoming clear that his gritty play may never materialize into NHL fantasy value. After a mediocre season in the ECHL, his upside is likely that of a role-playing AHLer. Chris Mazza

 

October 2018 – Gabrielle was not invited to Boston’s 2018 rookie camp or training camp, and was instead told to report directly to Providence, where he has been a healthy scratch in each of the team’s first three games. While the young prospect felt ready to compete, Bruins GM Don Sweeney mentioned last season’s ankle injury as a reason why he was sent directly to the AHL. Last season was a nightmare for the former fourth-round pick. After a disappointing trial run with Providence, he was sent back to the WHL, where he saw his production decline from the point-per-game pace that he had established over his previous two campaigns. This will be an important year for Gabrielle as he attempts to establish himself as a professional hockey player, however his first order of business must first be earning a spot in Providence’s lineup.
