A highly skilled defenseman, Vlasic capped-off his three year stint by registering 73 points, leading his club's defensive corps in scoring. The following season he made his NHL debut with the San Jose Sharks and after a respectable 81-game season, he was named with teammate Matt Carle to the NHL All-Rookie Team.

In 2014 Vlasic would return to Canada's national team. This time taking part in the Olympic Winter Games held in Sochi, Russia. Vlasic was part of defence corps that stifled opponents and led Canada to the gold medal. The Canadians would go undefeated in the tournament in large part due to their defensive play.
