San Jose Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic was placed on injured reserve, they announced on Sunday.

Vlasic was a late scratch on Saturday against the Carolina Hurricanes because of an undisclosed illness. Vlasic met with the media on Sunday and said he had a cold, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

"I'll see how I feel tomorrow," Vlasic said, according to the newspaper. "I'll get some rest tonight and we'll see tomorrow. Day-to-day."

Prior to the game Saturday, Vlasic had played in all but one game this season. He's second among San Jose skaters averaging 22:20 of ice time per game.

The Sharks also announced they recalled defenseman Dylan DeMelo from Worcester of the American Hockey League. He has four goals and 11 assists in 45 AHL games this season.
