Sharks' Vlasic Finds Twine In Win

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic tallied his eighth goal of the season in Tuesday's win over the Canucks.
Analysis: The eight goals match Marc-Edouard Vlasic's output from the last two seasons combined. He's benefited greatly from a 10.3 shooting rate that is nearly six points higher than his career percentage, so it wouldn't be surprising if Vlasic ends up falling short of the double-digit goals despite 17 games remaining on the Sharks' schedule.

Sharks' Vlasic Nets First Goal Since Injury

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had a goal and played 24:07 in Thursday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic's first two games back from injury came with a collective minus-5 rating. He changed that on Thursday, getting his first point since returning and posting a plus-2 rating. It looks like there's no need to worry about lingering effects of his injury.

Sharks' Vlasic Set To Return

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic (upper body) is slated to play Sunday against the Lightning, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Per the report, with Marc-Edouard Vlasic back in the mix, one of the Sharks' left-handed defenseman (Scott Hannan, Matt Irwin or Mirco Mueller) is in line to be the odd man out of Sunday night's lineup.

Sharks Activate Vlasic

News: The Sharks have activated Marc-Edouard Vlasic (upper body) from injured reserve, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic, who last suited up on Feb. 5, thus appears on track to be available for Sunday's game against the Lightning. The blueliner has recorded 17 points and 15 PIM in 52 games to date.

Sharks' Vlasic (Upper Body) Skates On Saturday

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic skated with the Sharks on Saturday, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: It's evident that Marc-Edouard Vlasic's health is trending upwards. However, at this point in time, it still isn't clear whether or not he'll be able to suit up on Sunday when the Sharks take on the Lightning. The team should shed some light on Vlasic's availability prior to Sunday's contest.

Sharks' Vlasic A Possibility For Sunday

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic (upper body) is considered "a possibility" to play Sunday against the Lightning, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic, who been held out of the Sharks' previous four games, resumed practicing with the team Saturday. The team will reevaluate him after Sunday's morning skate before making a call on his availability for the game.

Sharks' Vlasic (Upper Body) Out Friday

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic didn't travel with the team to Arizona and he will not play Friday against the Coyotes, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic suffered an upper-body injury at some point last week, and he will continue to sit on injured reserve through Friday. There is some good news on his situation, as he skated Friday and coach Todd McLellan insisted he does not have a concussion. He's eligible to return from injured reserve at any point, so now it's just a question of being fully healthy.

Sharks' Vlasic Out Monday

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic is reportedly dealing with an "upper-body" injury and will miss Monday's game against the Flames, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic was initially believed to be dealing with an illness, but coach Todd McLellan indicated that it is instead an upper-body injury that's ailing him. Regardless, it will cost him Monday's contest as well, meaning his next chance to return will come Wednesday against the Capitals. Scott Hannan will likely draw into the lineup in his place.

Sharks Place Vlasic On Injured Reserve

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic was placed on injured reserve Sunday.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic was initially believed to be dealing with an illness, but coach Todd McLellan clarified that he was suffering from an upper-body injury. The isssue will send him to injured reserve, pushing his potential return date back to next Sunday at the earliest. The team recalled Dylan DeMelo on Sunday to take his place on the roster.

Sharks' Vlasic Dealing With Illness

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic came down with an illness shortly before the start of Saturday's game against the Hurricanes and was a late scratch as a result, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic must have come down with the illness sometime after Saturday's morning skate since he was a full participant at that practice. He should be considered day-to-day ahead of Monday's game against the Canucks.

Sharks' Vlasic Scratched Saturday

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic has been scratched for Saturday's game against the Hurricanes for an undisclosed reason, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: The team hasn't released an update on Marc-Edouard Vlasic beyond the fact that he's been scratched for Saturday's contest. Oddly enough he participated in the morning skate and everyone will just have to speculate until the Sharks shed light on the situation.

Vlasic Adds Assist In Sharks Win

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic had an assist, a pair of shots, and 26:03 in ice time in Wednesday's win over the Kings.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic enters the All-Star break with six goals and 10 assists on the season. He's tied a career high in goals and is just shy of a career-pace for points. He's having a solid season, but remains a ways from being a top tier fantasy option on the blue line.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic

Two Days, Two Game-Winners For Sharks' Vlasic

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic scored the game-winning goal on the road for the second consecutive day in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win against the Wild.
Analysis: Right around 24 hours after potting the game-winner with 4.5 seconds remaining in Monday's win over Winnipeg, Marc-Edouard Vlasic came right back with another fate-deciding tally. With that, he's now tied his career high in goals (six), though he's quite unlikely to match the career-best 36 points he managed in that same 2008-09 season.

Sharks' Vlasic Assists Twice In Win

News: Marc-Edouard Vlasic pocketed two assists in Wednesday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Marc-Edouard Vlasic's 12 points and plus-11 rating over 37 games don't jump off the page, but his strong play on his own end isn't taken lightly by the Sharks. His average of 22:06 of ice time trails only Brent Burns on the team.

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.
