2014-15 Fantasy Hockey Outlook

Vlasic is a decent fantasy play in deep formats, but he's mostly a stay-at-home guy. He posted five goals and 19 assists on 138 shots to go along with a plus-31 rating (ninth in the NHL), with the latter figure driving most of his value. However, he'll always kill more penal...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Vlasic is a great, under-valued shutdown defenseman. His point totals don't shimmer, but you're getting nearly two blocked shots per game (he averaged 2.09 per game in the 2011-12 season), a positive plus/minus (plus-5 last season) and over twenty minutes per game. Pickles only notched seven points last season, so drafters be warned. Know what youre getting before you get it. Hes a defensive-minded defenseman. Don't project him as anything more.

2012-13

Pickles is underrated. His game doesn't stand out in any real way and you rarely hear his name. Such is the life of most super-effective, shutdown defenders. He gets a new partner this year in former Red Wing, Brad Stuart, and this new duo could be one of the best shutdown duos in the Western Conference. Vlasic isn't a head hunter; he uses exceptional positioning and a great stick to frustrate his opponents, and he'll probably end up with close to 25 points, too. Oh ya -- don't forget about all those blocked shots. He stopped 171 last year; he could easily approach 200 this time out.

2011-12

Vlasic, also known as "Pickles," is coming off a strange season, to say the least. He had gotten off to a horrible start in 2010-11, going 27 consecutive games without recording a single point before ending the infamous streak with a goal on December 9. However, the defender eventually picked up the slack and finished with a plus-14 rating, third best on the whole team. And even though he made inconsistency his middle name on the offensive end, Vlasic stayed committed on the defensive end by blocking a team-high 147 shots. He's worth a roll, but only in very deep fantasy leagues.

2010-11

They call him 'Pickles' but Vlasic's offensive game wasn't ripe during the 2009-10 season. Though to be fair, he did battle through lower body injuries for a bit, explaining his drop from 36 points in 2008-09, to a measly 16 last year. There are question marks for Vlasic, but sans Rob Blake, there should be plenty of chances for No. 44 to shine with the puck in a new season. Look for him to rebound closer to the 30-point range.

2009-10

Vlasic continues to benefit from plenty of ice time per game. The 2008-09 season was kind to him as he logged career-bests in every major category, including goals (6), assists (30), penalty minutes (42), and a plus/minus rating of plus-15. Remember, hes just 22 years old and has immense potential as a blooming rearguard. It would be wise to monitor his availability in fantasy pools.

2008-09

Put a big ribbon over his head because Vlasic is a gift to the Sharks, one they probably didn't think they would get to open so soon. The 21-year-old defenseman appeared in all 82 games last season, dishing 12 assists and scoring twice. The team inked Vlasic to a 4-year contract extension, ensuring that no other team enjoys the play of one of the better up-and-coming shutdown defensemen to appear in recent years. He will warrant serious fantasy consideration if he keeps improving at this rapid pace.

2007-08

Pickles was the biggest surprise for the Sharks in the 2006-07 season. Vlasic who turned 20 during the middle of the season, was arguably the best overall defenseman for the Sharks. Not only was he the second best shut down defenseman for the Sharks, he notched the third most points among blueliners with 26 points (three goals and 23 assists) in 81 games, while ranking third on the team in ice time with 22:12 min and a plus-13 rating. Expect Vlasic to continue to grow as he did throughout last season and because he will get to see more power-play time, expect him to reach the 30-point plateau.

2006-07

The 35th pick of the 2005 draft, he's got a future with the Sharks - in a couple of years.

2005-06

Second-round pick, 35th overall, in the 2005 summer draft. Let's see where he is in a couple of winters.

2004-05

Vlasic is a project defenseman. He's smart and dependable in a way that makes him nearly invisible on the ice. He doesn't get a lot of flashy points but then again, he doesn't make any real mistakes, either. At 6'0" and 180lbs, Vlasic needs to seriously bulk up to make it into the NHL.
