Kevin Labanc is back, for four years and $18.9 million dollars.

Doug Wilson set a high bar for Labanc: “There’s no doubt in our mind that he’s a 60-point guy going forward.”

As a point of reference, just 39 forwards — and no San Jose Sharks — met that mark this season. Labanc’s career-high was 56 points in 2018-19.

Kevin Labanc: “I know I’m a top-six forward.”

Kevin Labanc Re-signs for 4 Years, $18.9 Million

Around the NHL…

Sportsnet has a comprehensive free agent tracker — some key signings yesterday:

  • Nick Cousins signs with Nashville for two years, $3 million
  • Craig Smith signs with Boston for three years, $9.3 million
  • Jesper Fast signs with Carolina for three years, $6 million
  • Zach Bogosian signs with Toronto for one year, $1 million
  • Brandon Montour signs with Buffalo for one year, $3.85 million
  • Troy Stecher signs with Detroit for two years, $3.4 million
  • Tyson Barrie signs with Edmonton for one year, $3.75 million
  • Former San Jose Sharks goalie Thomas Greiss signs with Detroit for two years, $7.2 million
  • Mike Smith signs with Edmonton for one year, $2 million

Cousins, Smith, or Fast might have been good fits for the San Jose Sharks, who still need help up front.

Toronto also sent Andreas Johnsson to New Jersey for Joey Anderson. (TSN)

Seeing those guys and then Namesnitkov go this morning was painful…especially when It wasn’t like they signed for a lot …

I just feel like I wasn’t wishing for much…knew they weren’t going after the big names, was hoping they get two middle sixers, but now really is getting one solid third line winger too much to ask?? Haha. Let’s hope sorenson reverse to the one we saw two years ago.
