Sharks' Vlasic Adds Goal To Ledger

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic kicked off the Sharks' scoring Saturday against the Jets with a goal less than four minutes into the action.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic was credited with the tally when his shot from the point deflected off a Jets defenseman and into the goal. The Canadian Olympian is valued primarily for his contributions on his own end, but with two points and a plus-3 rating through two games, he's been a prime asset for fantasy owners in the early going.

Vlasic Grabs Assist In Sharks Season Opener

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had an assist and a shot through 21:20 in the Sharks opening night win over the Kings on Wednesday.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic should take a step forward from last year's totals, but he's unlikely to be posting gaudy numbers. Slow and steady production is what you're getting. Good minutes, some assists, and modest shot numbers, just like he did Wednesday night.

Sharks' Vlasic Fully Practicing

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic (knee) has been practicing in full for the Sharks as of late, Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.com reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic has been practicing next to Justin Braun on the first pairing through most of camp, as the Sharks look to create a larger role for a player who garnered Norris Trophy votes a season earlier. Though he's highly adept on his own end, Vlasic lacks the scoring aptitude of some of the league's other premier blueliners, which inhibits his value in fantasy. There should be more of an opportunity for him to find time on the power play this season now that Dan Boyle is departed, but it likely won't be a significant enough of a development to dramatically elevated his point total.

Sharks' Vlasic Remains Slowed By Knee Issue

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic said he expects to be fully recovered from his knee injury before training camp begins, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic was forced out of the final two games of the Sharks' first-round series loss to the Kings after taking a forearm shot to the head from Jarret Stoll while attaining the knee injury in an ensuing fall. The defenseman said that he's no longer bothered by the head injury, but that the knee would still require a few more weeks of rest. Though his numbers fizzled out toward the end of the season, Vlasic finished with a career-best plus-31 rating and gathered five goals and 19 assists over 81 regular-season contests. He also earned a spot on Canada's Olympic team for his efforts.

Sharks' Vlasic Out For Game 7

News: As anticipated, Marc-Edouard Vlasic (upper body) has been ruled out for Wednesday's Game 7 against the Kings, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: He'll miss his second straight game, with the Sharks turning to Matt Irwin to take his spot in the lineup.

Sharks' Vlasic Expected To Miss Game 7

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic (upper body) is not expected to play in Game 7 against the Kings on Wednesday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic didn't take part in the team's morning skate, so it sounds like the Sharks will have to win Wednesday and advance to the second round if we're going to see Vlasic on the ice again this season. The blueliner posted a goal and two assists in the first five games of the series before getting hurt.

Sharks' Vlasic Out For Game 6

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic (upper body) will not play in Game 6 against the Kings, CSN Bay Area's Brodie Brazil reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic did not participate in the Monday morning free skate, so this news is not surprising. He sustained the injury in the first period of Game 5 and didn't return for the latter two frames. Vlasic's status for a potential Game 7 is still uncertain; however, he should be considered day-to-day going forward.

Sharks' Vlasic Misses Morning Skate

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic (upper body) was not present for Monday's morning skate, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic's absence from the Sharks' morning skate suggests it's unlikely he plays in Monday's Game 6 against the Kings. It should be noted that this was an optional skate, however, so he hasn't yet been officially ruled out.

Sharks' Vlasic Iffy For Game 6

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic (upper body) did not skate Sunday morning, CSN's Kevin Kurz reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic -- who suffered an upper body injury in Saturday's loss to the Kings -- is thus iffy for Monday's Game 6, with the San Jose Mercury News suggesting that the blueliner may be dealing with a concussion.

Sharks' Vlasic Iffy For Monday

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic was limited to 5:38 worth of ice time in Saturday's loss to the Kings after suffering an upper-body injury, the Sharks' official site reports.
Analysis: Coach Todd McLellan indicated after Saturday's contest that Marc-Edouard Vlasic's status for Monday's Game 6 is uncertain. Vlasic has a goal and two assists through the first five games of the Sharks' current series against the Kings.

Sharks' Vlasic Racks Up Niche Stats

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic managed to have a minus-1 rating despite a 7-2 win in Sunday's Game 2, but also pulled in three shots, five blocked shots, a hit and a takeaway.
Analysis: The opening two games of the postseason could serve as a microcosm of why Marc-Edouard Vlasic is so important to San Jose (and maybe your team). He has the ability to impact the game offensively, but he's a defensive defenseman who plays a complete defensive game. He's going to block shots, play safe, take the body, and generally pull in some positive numbers one way or another. Depending on your format, Vlasic can be a real value play.

Sharks' Vlasic Is First Star

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic recorded a goal and an assist through 18:50 of ice time in a Game 1 win over the Kings on Thursday.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic also added five shots and was a big factor defensively for the Sharks as they took Game 1. It's an impressive start for Vlasic, who has always been a talent, but bloomed this year. In 79 previous playoff games he had one goal and 10 assists.

Vlasic Out Of Sharks Lineup Friday

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic will not play in Friday's game.
Analysis: It sounds like Marc-Edouard Vlasic will get a rest to head into the playoffs ready to go.

Vlasic Has Key Contributions In Sharks' Win

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic contributed an assist, went plus-1, picked up two penalty minutes and blocked four shots over 18:15 in Thursday's marquee win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic continues to be a well-rounded player with a killer plus-minus (plus-32 on the season). He's not going to top any category, but he'll consistently bring you points in a variety of columns.

Vlasic Sacrifices The Body For San Jose

News: While Marc-Edouard Vlasic didn't continue his scoring streak, he was a plus-1 with six blocked shots through 21:35 of ice time in Friday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic has been a great value for where he was likely drafted in your league. He's blocking shots, scoring more than was expected, his plus-30 rating is third best in the league, and is playing big minutes. There's not much to dislike about his stats this year.

Vlasic Has Points In Two Straight For Sharks

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had an assist, 22:43 of ice time, and a plus-1 rating in Thursday's shootout win over Columbus.
Analysis: After a bit of an expected lull, Marc-Edouard Vlasic is back to his scoring ways from earlier in the season. In the last nine games he's got a goal and five assists. He's also a plus-14 with an average of 2.89 shots per game over that stretch. That shot average is more than twice his best rate from any season past.

Vlasic Has Goal, Plus-5 Rating In Win

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had a goal, a plus-5 rating, two blocked shots, and eight shots in a rout of the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
Analysis: It was a banner night for Marc-Edouard Vlasic who has had some very strong play lately. In the last three games he's a plus-8 with a goal, an assist, and 12 penalty minutes. Though, he hasn't broken the 20-minute mark in any of those games.

Vlasic Adds Point On Empty-Netter For Sharks

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic assisted on the empty-netter that iced the win over Pittsburgh on Thursday. He was also a plus-2 with a pair of shots.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic has played strong defensively since returning from Sochi and is even adding a little offense again. In the five games since the break he has three assists and a plus-7 rating.

Sharks' Vlasic Has Points In Three Straight

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had an assist, two shots, and a plus-1 rating in a loss to Buffalo on Friday.
Analysis: That gives Marc-Edouard Vlasic assists in three straight games. Ride him while his offensive burst continues. It won't last forever.

SJ's Vlasic Returns From Sochi Playing Strong

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had an assist and a plus-3 rating during 21:57 of ice time in Thursday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic started the season like a man shot from a cannon. Looking at the box score, you might think his play has slowed, especially noting that he's just two games removed from a 13-game pointless streak. That's the lie of the box score. He's regressed to the mean a bit offensively, but he has continued to play some of the best defensive hockey in the league. He'll keep accumulating minutes and shots and the occasional offensive burst.

SJ's Vlasic Enters Break Playing Strong

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had an assist, four shots, and 21:46 of playing time in the Sharks' 3-2 win over Columbus on Friday.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic has slowed down from the incredible scoring pace he had early in the season, but his overall play has not sunk. That's disappointing for fantasy owners, but he's still getting pucks to the net, blocking shots, and laying the body. His strong play will continue to get him solid minutes and stretches of point surges, but his forte may not translate into the fantasy production your team needs.

Vlasic Blocks Five In Sharks Win

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had an assist, five blocked shots, and a roughing minor in Thursday's win over Detroit.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic continues to prove that he's becoming a well-rounded player with an offensive touch. He may be in competition for one of the more pleasantly surprising performances from a defenseman halfway through the season.

Sharks' Vlasic Assists On Big Goal

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had an assist, a hit, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in an overtime win against Dallas on Saturday.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic owners had a good night, as Pickles brought in his first point since Dec. 6 and his first positive plus-minus rating since Dec. 3. It's been a tough December for Vlasic. Actually, it was a tough November too. Here's hoping he gets back to his play in October, when Pickles notched three goals and seven assists — and was plus-13 — in 13 games.

Sharks' Vlasic Ends Drought In Loss

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had a goal and three shots during his 20:40 on ice in Friday's loss to Carolina.
Analysis: After having a breakout start to the season Marc-Edouard Vlasic has slowed the scoring pace considerably. This goal ends a streak of 15 games without a goal. To make matters worse, he only had two assists over that stretch. He started November as a sleeper pick for a top fantasy defenseman, then ended the month completely asleep. Here's hoping this is the start of a turnaround in Vlasic's fantasy value.

Sharks' Vlasic Falls Back To Earth

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had an impressive six shots in Thursday's OT win over Vancouver, but added little else for fantasy owners outside of his 22:34 on ice.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic started the season as one of the hottest defensemen in the NHL. With no points in his last four games (he's also a minus-2 in those four games and took zero shots in two of them), we may be witnessing Vlasic's return to earth. However, Vlasic's "return to earth" isn't the same level he was at last year. He's top 20 among defensemen in goals, assists, points, and plus/minus.
