NHL free agency 2019: Sharks hold onto rising forward Kevin Labanc

first_imgIn 214 career games with the Sharks, Labanc has recorded 116 points.After losing Joe Pavelski, Joonas Donskoi and Gustav Nyquist to the free agency market, San Jose will likely see Labanc step into a bigger role this season as the top-line right wing alongside Logan Couture and Timo Meier.Given his speed, skating and scoring sense, Labanc will likely continue to thrive and improve on his numbers with more ice time, as he’s proven to be a consistent scorer still in the prime of his career. “Kevin took a big step forward in his production last season and has grown into an important part of our team here in San Jose,” general manager Doug Wilson said in the signing announcement. “He’s always had a dangerous shot but really stepped into a playmaking role for us last season and improved his 200-foot game as well. We think he still has even more potential to tap into and we’re excited to see what he can do with an elevated role with this talented group.”NHL free agency tracker: Complete list of all 31 teams’ UFAs and RFAsThe Staten Island, New York, native was also instrumental in San Jose’s run to the Western Conference Final; his most notable performance came in the team’s Game 7 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights, when he assisted on all three of the Sharks’ third-period power-play goals and scored the go-ahead power-play tally during a five minute major penalty on Cody Eakin. The San Jose Sharks know they have a rising top player in Kevin Labanc, and they’ll hang onto him for at least one more year as they signed him to a one-year extension on Monday.Labanc, 23, had a strong showing for the Sharks this season, putting up a career-high 17 goals and 56 points (20 of them coming on the power play) in the final year of his entry-level contract. He has continued to improve on his numbers each season he’s been in the NHL; he had 20 points in his rookie season and doubled that point total in 2017-18 before finally hitting the 50-point mark in the 2018-19 campaign.last_img read more

first_imgA native of Plainfield, N.J., Campbell was a rising high school senior when he won the silver medal in the decathlon at the 1952 Olympics in Helsinki, finishing second to Bob Mathias. The Americans swept the decathlon that year. Four years later, Campbell won gold at the Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia.“World record holder Rafer Johnson was hampered by injury, but even in full health he probably couldn’t have beaten Milt Campbell in Melbourne,” according to The Complete Book of the Summer Olympics by David Wallechinsky.Campbell had hoped to qualify for the Olympic team as a hurdler, but he finished fourth during tryouts.“I was stunned,” Campbell said in the book. “But then God seemed to reach into my heart and tell me he didn’t want me to compete in the hurdles, but in the decathlon.”The 6-foot-3, 217-pound Campbell, who attended Indiana University, was drafted in 1957 by the Cleveland Browns, where he played one season in the same backfield as Jim Brown. Campbell then played for various teams in the Canadian Football League until his football career in 1964.Campbell was inducted into the National Track and Field Hall of Fame in 1999 and was honored this year by the International Swimming Hall of Fame. In 2000, the New Jersey Sportswriters Association named Campbell its New Jersey Athlete of the Century.In June, he was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame along with nine others, including actor Michael Douglas, author Joyce Carol Oates and the late New York Giants owner Wellington Mara.Rusch said Campbell became a motivational speaker, and maintained a positive outlook despite the loss of a son to cancer and as he himself fought the disease. In addition to Rusch, he is survived by three grown children. GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP)—Milt Campbell, who became the first African-American to win the Olympic decathlon in 1956 and went on to play pro football and become a motivational speaker, has died, his family said. He was 78. MILT CAMPBELL Linda Rusch, Campbell’s partner of 13 years, said Campbell died Nov. 2 at his home in Gainesville, about 55 miles northwest of Atlanta. She said he had been fighting prostate cancer for a decade.“He was extremely disciplined,” Rusch told The Associated Press on Saturday. “He had huge passion. For you to win the gold you have to be so self-motivated and so self-disciplined. And you have to have a very strong mind.”“He literally had to train himself to have this incredible mind, to be such a positive thinker,” she added. “He carried that way of life throughout his whole entire being.” FIRST BLACK DECATHALON WINNER—This July 26, 1952 file photo shows Milt Campbell, center, of Plainfield, N.J. getting set to clear the final hurdle to make him the winner in the fifth heat of the 110-meter hurdles event in the Olympic decathlon at Helsinki, Finland. last_img read more
