Kevin Labanc News
San Jose Sharks winger Kevin Labanc (personal) will re-enter the lineup Thursday against St. Louis. He was unavailable for Tuesday's clash with Montreal as Labanc expected the birth of his son. With Timo Meier now out of town, Labanc is the fourth-highest scorer among Sharks forwards, having recorded 25 points across 51 outings. Labanc has already gotten usage on the first line and could get to play an even bigger role after Meier's departure, although his first aim will be to lock up a regular spot in the lineup. The 27-year-old has been a healthy scratch multiple times since the turn of the year and Sharks head coach David Quinn doesn't tend to have much patience with Labanc.
San Jose Sharks winger Kevin Labanc is set to end a four-game stint in the press box Tuesday against Pittsburgh. He will replace Jonah Gadjovich (upper body) in the lineup. Having earned 25 points in 45 games, Labanc is the team's sixth-highest scorer, but something in his play has clearly irked head coach David Quinn, who has played Labanc in only two of the last 10 games. The 27-year-old re-enters the lineup only as a fourth-liner as well, so Labanc currently finds himself in a very tough spot.
San Jose Sharks winger Kevin Labanc will miss another game as a healthy scratch Tuesday against Tampa Bay. He was also kept out of the lineup for the final game ahead of the All-Star break and Labanc even had a four-game spell in the press box in January, so things aren't looking great for him in San Jose. Despite being forced to sit out multiple games, Labanc remains the sixth-best scorer on the team with 25 points and has managed 10 goals in 45 games. Noah Gregor has replaced him in the lineup and looks set to continue on the top line Tuesday.
San Jose Sharks winger Kevin Labanc will remain a healthy scratch for Wednesday's clash with the Stars. It was reported on Tuesday that he will return to action after sitting out Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to New Jersey, but that won't be the case. The 27-year-old has dropped out of the lineup with 10 goals and 15 assists to his name in 43 games. Noah Gregor has taken his spot and will go again Wednesday on the third line. Gregor has picked up only two points in 20 games this season and went scoreless in 15:21 of ice time Monday, so he's not a viable fantasy option.
