Labanc notched his first career goal as well as a pair of penalty minutes in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Blues.

A major scorer in junior hockey, the 20-year-old winger came to the AHL and proceeded to pour in 10 points over six games, which got him called to hockey's highest level. He saw bottom-six minutes over his first four NHL contests, recording no points, but Labanc enjoyed a bigger role Thursday, playing 15:48 and having Joe Thornton assist on his goal -- a pretty, spinning shot from the slot that cleanly beat Jake Allen. Labanc's an interesting under-the-radar pickup for owners in dynasty formats right now, but those in seasonal leagues should take a wait-and-see approach.
