  • Sharks' Kevin Labanc: Deposits goal Tuesday

    Labanc scored a goal in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Jets.

He's had some good moments in 2022-23, but it's hard to see him finding success if he remains stuck on the third line. Labanc has 13 goals, 29 points, 114 shots on net, 60 hits and a minus-16 rating through 64 appearances.

  • Sharks' Kevin Labanc: Rejoins Sharks

    Labanc (personal) rejoined the Sharks for Wednesday's skate, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Labanc missed Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Montreal as he awaited the birth of his child. He has 10 goals and 25 points in 51 contests this season. Labanc hasn't recorded a point over his last 10 outings. The 27-year-old should be an option for Thursday's game against St. Louis.

  • Sharks' Kevin Labanc: Unavailable against Habs

    Labanc is awaiting the birth of his child and won't be in the lineup versus Montreal on Tuesday, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Labanc's game has been struggling of late, as he remains stuck in a 10-game pointless streak during which he managed 20 shots, 11 hits and three blocks. With Labanc unavailable, new additions Andreas Johnsson and Fabian Zetterlund are set to make their Sharks debuts on a line with Tomas Hertl.

  • Sharks' Kevin Labanc: May not play Thursday

    Labanc may not play Thursday against the Golden Knights as he could return to San Jose for the upcoming birth of his child, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Labanc finally returned to the lineup Tuesday as he had been a healthy scratch the previous four games and eight of the last 10. The winger has 10 goals and 25 points in 46 games this season. Stay tuned.

  • Sharks' Kevin Labanc: Absence was performance related

    Labanc was a healthy scratch Saturday versus the Penguins, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    There was talk of an illness going around the Sharks' locker room, but it apparently hasn't reached Labanc at this time. Noah Gregor scored a goal while playing in Labanc's usual top-line role Saturday, so this will be a playing-time situation to monitor after the All-Star break.

  • Sharks' Kevin Labanc: Not playing Saturday

    Labanc (undisclosed) isn't expected to play Saturday versus Pittsburgh, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Labanc has 10 goals and 25 points in 45 contests this season while averaging 15:29 of ice time. Sharks coach David Quinn previously told Pashelka that the team is dealing with some illness issues, so it wouldn't be surprising if Labanc's absence is linked to that. Noah Gregor, who entered Saturday's action averaging 12:24 of ice time, is projected to take Labanc's place on the top line with Timo Meier and Tomas Hertl.

  • Sharks' Kevin Labanc: Two points in win

    Labanc scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and logged two PIM in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Labanc opened the scoring in the first period, but he failed to do his defensive diligence on one of the Coyotes' tallies. The 27-year-old was benched for about half of the middle frame, then went on to pick up an assist in the third. This was Labanc's third two-point outing in his last six games -- he's put up goose eggs in the other three outings in that span. The winger has 10 goals, 25 points, 75 shots on net, 35 hits, 22 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 41 contests.

    Labanc notched two assists and fired three shots on goal in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Ducks.

    Labanc set up both of Timo Meier's second-period tallies. This was Labanc's second multi-point effort in the last four games, as he continues to contribute fairly regularly in a top-six role. The winger is up to nine tallies, 14 assists, 70 shots on net, 20 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 39 appearances this season.

  • Sharks' Kevin Labanc: Dishes out five hits vs. Dallas

    Labanc (undisclosed) recorded five hits in a 5-2 loss to Dallas on Saturday.

    Labanc was questionable for the contest after exiting Thursday's game against Philadelphia in the third period because of the injury.

  • Sharks' Kevin Labanc: Good to go

    Labanc (undisclosed) will play Saturday versus Dallas, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    As expected, Labanc will play despite exiting Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to Philadelphia in the third period. He has notched nine goals and 21 points in 36 games this season. Look for Labanc to play alongside Tomas Hertl and Matt Nieto in Saturday's contest.

  • Sharks' Kevin Labanc: Expected to be OK after exit

    Labanc (undisclosed) is expected to be fine after he left Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flyers in the third period, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Labanc was on the receiving end of a hit from Joel Farabee, which earned the Flyers' forward a two-minute minor penalty for boarding. While Labanc didn't return to the game, head coach David Quinn didn't indicate that this would be a significant issue for the winger. Labanc had another productive outing Thursday with a goal and an assist, giving him nine tallies, 21 points, 64 shots on net and a minus-3 rating in 36 appearances. Another update on his status should surface before Saturday's game in Dallas.

  • Sharks' Kevin Labanc: Tickles twine in shootout loss

    Labanc scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Kings.

    Labanc put the Sharks ahead in the second period, though the lead lasted all of 50 seconds before Jaret Anderson-Dolan tied the game. Through six games in December, Labanc has three goals and two assists. He's still doing well in a top-line role at even strength, with seven tallies, 18 points, 58 shots on net, 20 hits and a minus-3 rating through 31 contests overall.

    Labanc posted an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 6-1 win over the Ducks.

    Labanc has two goals and two assists during a four-game point streak. While he's not in the neighborhood of linemates Timo Meier and Tomas Hertl for offense, Labanc has put together a solid campaign so far. The winger has six tallies, 11 assists, 55 shots on net, 16 PIM and a minus-4 rating through 29 outings, offering solid depth scoring.

    Labanc's third-period tally put the Sharks ahead 5-4, but they couldn't maintain the lead. The 26-year-old winger has been fairly solid lately with three goals and four helpers in his last eight contests. He's up to six tallies, 10 helpers, 53 shots, 16 PIM and a minus-6 rating in 28 outings overall. Labanc will continue to have some fantasy appeal in deeper formats as long as he stays on the top line.

This was also his first power-play point since Nov. 5.
