7. Kevin Labanc

The most recent late round pick that’s turned into a steal for Team Teal is Kevin Labanc, who the Sharks drafted in the 2014 NHL Draft with the 171st overall pick in the 6th round.

Labanc has only played in 214 games with the Sharks but in those games has put up 36 goals to go along with 80 assists giving him 116 career points. Kevin has shown how much talent he has and his high potential in his three seasons with Team Teal both in the regular season and the playoffs.

The Staten Island native already holds an NHL record in his young career when he became the first player to score 4 points in a single period in a Game 7. This record-setting performance came in what was likely the most intense game in franchise history against the Vegas Golden Knights. This sequence likely sealed Labanc’s name in Sharks lore forever, but still has much more to prove in the Bay Area.

The 23-year-old winger will be a player to watch in the future for San Jose and has the potential to move up on this list as his career progresses.
