Fantasy Impact:

This contract is nothing short of a steal for the Sharks. The 23-year-old right-winger is coming off the most productive season of his young career, posting career-highs in goals (17), assists (39) and points (56). On top of that, he solidified himself as a fixture on the Sharks power-play, recording 20 points with the man advantage. Joe Pavelski and Gustav Nyquist have moved on, so the path to top-six minutes is even clearer in San Jose. With Labanc already having proved worthy of advanced offensive responsibility in a feisty Sharks offense, he could be a very solid value pick in fantasy drafts.
