Sharks' Vlasic Back In Saturday

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic (upper body) was on the ice for morning skate and looks like he'll play Saturday against the Predators, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: He's expected to substitute back in for Mirco Mueller, who replaced Marc-Edouard Vlasic in the lineup Thursday. Though his eight points and plus-12 rating over 30 games don't equate to high-end fantasy production, Vlasic is probably the Sharks' most vital blueliner for the steady play he provides on his own end.

Sharks' Vlasic Skates Friday

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic (upper body) took part in Friday's optional skate, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: It's an indication that the injury that sidelined Marc-Edouard Vlasic for Thursday's game against the Wild is something minor. The blueliner will presumably take part in the Sharks' morning session Saturday, and if all goes well, he'll likely return to the lineup later that night for an important match with the Predators.

Sharks' Vlasic To Sit Thursday

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic (upper body) didn't take the ice for morning skate and looks like he'll be out for Thursday's game against the Wild, CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz reports.
Analysis: With Marc-Edouard Vlasic unavailable, rookie Mirco Mueller is slated to take his spot on the top pairing and play big minutes next to Justin Braun. The Sharks were labeling Vlasic as questionable heading into Thursday, so there would seem to be some optimism that he's not dealing with a long-term injury. He could return to the lineup as soon as Saturday's tilt with the Predators.

Sharks' Vlasic (Upper Body) Questionable Thursday

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic is questionable for Thursday's game against the Wild due to an upper-body injury, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic didn't skate at Wednesday's practice a night after he collided with the end boards in a victory over the Oilers, resulting in him seeing a season-low 7:28 of ice time. His status likely won't be known until the Sharks conduct their gameday skate.

Sharks' Vlasic Leaves Tuesday With Injury

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic left Tuesday's win over the Oilers after he was knocked into the boards late in the first period, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Coach Todd McLellan didn't specify the nature of Marc-Edouard Vlasic's injury in his postgame interview, but he indicated that the defenseman's removal had more to do with "precautionary-type stuff." The Sharks are expected to offer more information regarding his injury during Wednesday's practice, but he'll be considered questionable for Thursday's tilt with the Wild for the moment. The blueliner has eight points and a plus-12 rating over 30 games on the campaign.

SJ's Vlasic Snaps Four-Game Slump

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic added an assist and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's shutout victory over Carolina.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic remains the most pivotal part of the San Jose blue line, but his fantasy numbers aren't going to blow you away. He logs a solid number of minutes, consistently in the low 20s, and gets a few shots, but his six points in the first 20 games is kind of what you're going to get with him.

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 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.
