It's no surprise to see a professional hockey player missing a tooth... but Robby Fabbri's story is more unique than most.

ST. LOUIS — It's not uncommon to see hockey players often missing a tooth or two.

It seems that at some point in every player's career, they're sporting a nice gap in their pearly whites.

Robby Fabbri can relate to that. However, the way he lost his tooth is about as unique as it comes.

Fabbri made it through the hockey season with his mouth seemingly unscathed... but that was until teammate Joel Edmundson came running towards him in the championship parade.
