Fantasy Summary

A defensive minded defenceman, Vlasic will never put up big point numbers but will be the type of player every team covets


Observations

March 2021 – Vlasic has the makings of a very solid NHL defenseman. His defense first mindset will compliment all of the offensive talent the Blackhawks have amassed on the blueline. The first thing you notice about him is his size at 6-6. Once he takes the ice you almost immediately notice how fluid he is on his skates. That size part of his game needs no work, but if anyone could coach him on how to skate with the puck he could wind up being a very well rounded player. That being said, defense is what will pay the bills and Vlasic is well on his way to being a premier shut down defender in the NHL. There is still a long road ahead but his progression is where you would expect it to be at this point. Tony Carr
