San Jose Sharks
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Labanc had a breakout year during his sophomore campaign in 2017-18, racking up 11 goals and 40 points while firing 156 shots on net in 77 contests. The 22-year-old forward should only continue to improve in 2018-19, and he could easily surpass the 15-goal and 50-point thresholds if he averages more than two minutes per game with the man advantage for a second straight season. Labanc is an up-and-coming player with significant offensive upside who should slot into a prominent top-six role with the Sharks this campaign, making him a name fantasy owners will want to remember when rounding out their forward corps in drafts this year.

The goal gives the 23-year-old winger 55 points (16 tallies, 39 helpers) in 80 games this season. Despite skating on the third line, he features on the top power-play unit, where he's collected 20 of his points.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2015
The Sharks look brilliant for taking a chance on Labanc as a sixth-round draft choice in 2014. He claimed the 2016 Eddie Powers Memorial Trophy as the OHL's leading point-getter with the Barrie Colts -- providing a ridiculous output of 39 goals and 88 assists -- and the shifty American winger is on the heels of a rookie NHL campaign consisting of 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) and a plus-9 rating over 55 games. Labanc is known as a fearless competitor who likes to chase down loose pucks, and that bodes well for his fantasy prospects. Best of all, he's likely to come cheap given that there's a host of options at the winger spot, and Labanc isn't a household name just yet.
Signed an entry-level contract with San Jose in March 2016.
