Kevin Labanc is back with the San Jose Sharks. He was sent down to the Barracuda following the Sharks’ 3-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens. Labanc played in both of the Barracuda’s games against the San Antonio Rampage in Texas, where he recorded three assists and five shots on goal.

In 12 NHL games, Labanc has four points on two goals and two assists. He has 13 points in eight AHL games.
