Marc-Edouard Vlasic is participating in his first Olympic Games for Canada and he’s not looking to steal the show.

Vlasic has been paired up with Kings defenseman Drew Doughty during practices ahead of the start of play on Thursday and, as Arpon Basu of NHL.com shares, he just wants to go out and do his job and not become more famous because of it.

“I’m a quiet guy. I just do what I do on the ice,” Vlasic said. “Other than that, as long as your peers and coaches know you, to me that’s what’s most important.”

Vlasic also added he just wants to do what he’s been doing for the past four seasons and that means playing strong defense. He has four goals and 18 points this season for the San Jose Sharks so he can pitch in offensively, but with Doughty manning the other side his job is to stay back.

      You’re an idiot. Pickles stays out of the limelight at all times – that’s just his personality. Meanwhile, he is one of the best defensive defensemen in the league.
