Defenseman Dylan Labbe have been recalled from the Quad City Mallards by the American Hockey League’s Iowa Wild, the Mallards announced today.
Labbe, 21, returns to Iowa after being reassigned to the Mallards by the Wild for the second time this season on February 23. The 6-foot-2-inch, 195-pound St. Benjamin, Quebec, native has collected a pair of assists in 11 AHL games this season. Labbe has scored three goals and picked up three assists in 15 ECHL outings.
Labbe scored four goals and notched two assists in 54 games with Iowa as a rookie last year. Labbe got his first taste of pro hockey when he scored his first career goal and recorded a pair of assists in 11 games with the Wild in the spring of 2014. A year later he played three late-season AHL games without registering a point.
Labbe, who was selected by the Minnesota Wild in the fourth round of the 2013 National Hockey League Entry Draft with the one hundred seventh overall choice, spent three full seasons and part of a fourth with the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s Shawinigan Cataractes before beginning his pro career. In 2014-15, Labbe finished tied for third among QMJHL defensemen in goals (15) and finished sixth among defensemen in points (51). He produced 31 goals and 75 assists for 106 points in 193 career games with Shawinigan.
