San Jose Sharks

NHL CapHit: $4,725,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Sharks have re-signed Kevin Labanc to a four-year deal worth $18.9 million ($4.725M AAV).

Labanc was an RFA after his one-year bridge deal expired and earned a big raise from $1.0M AAV to $4.725M over the next four years. Labanc enjoyed a breakout season in 2019 but his numbers dropped off in 2020. There was no way he was going to maintain the 13.1 SH% from 2019 but his on-ice SH% plummeted to 6.6%, so expect his assist total to bounce-back in 2021.

Labanc is expected to be a healthy scratch on Tuesday.

Labanc was back in the lineup on Saturday but based on the morning skate he will be replaced by Melker Karlsson tonight in Philadelphia. Labanc has seen some time on the Sharks top-line this season and has eight points (3G / 5A) in 18 games but will get a night off for the second time in three games tonight.

The Sharks have recalled Kevin Labanc from San Jose (AHL).

Labanc has picked up 10 points (4G / 6A) in six games with the Barracuda, earning himself his first NHL call-up. Lebanc was a sixth round pick in 2014, but had an absurd 234 points (70G / 164A) in the last two season with the Barrie Colts (OHL). Lebanc is skating on a line with Logan Couture and Joonas Donskoi in Tuesday’s morning skate.
