Though he's finish the season with 11 fewer games played than a year earlier, he'll finish with only one fewer point (23) and four more goals (nine).

He's benefited greatly from a 10.3 shooting rate that is nearly six points higher than his career percentage, so it wouldn't be surprising if Vlasic ends up falling short of the double-digit goals despite 17 games remaining on the Sharks' schedule.
