Sharks' Marc-Edouard Vlasic: Leaves late Saturday, will play Tuesday

Vlasic missed the third period of Saturday's game for an undisclosed reason, but he stated Monday that he will play in Tuesday's matchup with the Coyotes, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

The blueliner remains a vital part of the Sharks attack, though he hasn't gotten off to as strong of a start in 2016. Fortunately, whatever issue forced him out of Saturday's game shouldn't be cause for concern moving forward and Vlasic should be used regularly in both season-long and daily formats.
