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.

Banks another goal
RWSan Jose Sharks
February 11, 2019
Labanc scored his 10th goal of the season in Monday's 7-2 win over the Canucks.
ANALYSIS
A game after his first career hat trick, Labanc was at it again with the goal. He's at 37 points in 57 games, sitting just one goal and three points shy of his totals from last year. While not known for his physicality, he also delivered two hits Monday. Labanc's contributions have helped the Sharks become the second-ranked offense in the NHL with 3.68 goals per game, and he should be gaining attention in the league and fantasy formats alike.

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.
