Vlasic has been out of action since March 17, which was 11 games ago. He has eight goals and 39 points with a plus-15 rating thus far. "He looks good," coach Peter DeBoer said. "We’ll make some decisions on tomorrow’s lineup, but I know for a fact he’ll be ready for the playoffs, which is good news." Don't forget to draft him in playoff pools if you think the Sharks are going deep into the post-season.
Apr 9 - 10:43 AM

Marc-Edouard Vlasic (sprained MCL) has been ruled out for Thursday's game.

Vlasic might be available for Saturday's season finale though. The most important thing is that he's good for the playoffs, but participating in Saturday's contest would allow him to shake off some rust after being sidelined for nearly a month.
Apr 7 - 3:14 PM

Marc-Edouard Vlasic (sprained MCL) skated for the first time on Saturday since he was injured on March 18.

The Sharks are hoping to get Vlasic back in time for the start of the playoffs and if he is able to play in the team's regular season finale next week, that would be even better. The Sharks best all-round blueliner has eight goals and 39 points with a plus-15 rating this season. He has missed the last nine games.
Apr 3 - 8:40 AM

Marc-Edouard Vlasic (lower body) isn't skating yet, but the Sharks still hope that he'll be available for their playoff opener.

"That’s the plan. It is. I think if anything he’d like to try and get in before the playoffs if it’s possible, but again, that’s going to be up to the medical team and how Marc-Edouard feels, but I think that’s his goal," Sharks assistant coach Steve Spott said. Vlasic will travel with the Sharks to Nashville for Saturday's game and Minnesota for Tuesday's contest, which is obviously encouraging. At the end of the day, this might work out for Vlasic and the Sharks as he'll be well rested for the postseason.
Mar 31 - 6:37 PM

Marc-Edouard Vlasic (lower body) still hasn't resumed skating.

He won't play Monday night versus Los Angeles. "He's getting closer, improving every day. Again, it's one of those things where we've got some time on our side here," coach Pete DeBoer said. "The important thing is he's ready to go for playoffs." There's no timetable for when Vlasic will return to the ice.
