Sharks scratch Vlasic because of illness (Update)


Marc-Edouard Vlasic is one of the San Jose Sharks’ scratches on Saturday, and it’s unclear if it’s a healthy scratch, injury-related or had something to do with a moistened tracksuit.

Update: No locker room drama here, unless Vlasic shared a drink with someone and got another Shark sick. It looks like he’s just ill.

As’s Kevin Kurz notes, it’s unclear what is wrong at the time, as Vlasic participated in the Sharks’ morning skate.
