Vlasic (undisclosed) will return to action for Thursday's Game 4 versus the Golden Knights, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports. With the Sharks trailing 2-1 in their opening-round series versus the Golden Knights, they will get some reinforcements along the blue line in the form of the veteran rearguard. Vlasic posted a plus-1 rating during the first two games of the series and notched a goal and an assist in Game 1, so he could play a pivotal role if the Sharks are to make a comeback. Pickles saw a dip in his production this season to just 25 points, in part due to a drop in power play time.
Vlasic (undisclosed) is a "possibility" for Game 5 against the Golden Knights on Thursday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports. Kurz suspects that Vlasic is probable for the do-or-die contest against Vegas, but we may not find out the defenseman's official availability until closer to pregame warmups. Tim Heed figures to continue filling in for Pickles if he ends up missing a third straight contest.
Vlasic (undisclosed) won't play in Game 4 versus the Golden Knights on Tuesday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Vlasic will miss his second straight game due to this mystery condition. With Vlasic out, Brenden Dillon bumps up to the top pairing with Brent Burns while Tim Heed enters the lineup.
Vlasic (undisclosed) is still considered day-to-day leading into Tuesday's Game 4 matchup with the Golden Knights, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports. While it's certainly better than week-to-week, the fact that Vlasic remains day-to-day doesn't bode well for his availability Tuesday. The Montreal native registered a goal and an assist in Game 1, then failed to get on the scoresheet in Game 2 after logging just 7:02 of ice time before getting hurt. If the blueliner does in fact miss his second straight game, Tim Heed figures to continue deputizing in his stead.
Vlasic (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's Game 3 showdown against Vegas, Nick Cotsonika of NHL.com reports. The Sharks' defenseman played sparingly in Game 2, logging 7:02 of ice time before being forced out of the game with an undisclosed injury. Vlasic was a decent contributor in his 13th season, racking up 25 points in 72 games. In his stead, Tim Heed will draw into the lineup.
