Tomas Hertl has recorded 11 points in his last 11 games.
It helps that Hertl has been playing alongside Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton lately. "First half, the goals weren't really coming," Hertl said. "So it was a little bit frustrating, because I had 19 games and no goals. That's pretty long. Now I just go to net, get bounces and score. It's way better. The biggest thing is that we're winning too." Hertl has plenty of offensive potential, but he's struggled over the last two seasons to live up to it. Those growing pains are understandable though and it wouldn't be surprising to see him finish the 2015-16 campaign on a high note. Feb 4 - 11:19 AM

Tomas Hertl scored and added an assist in the Sharks 6-1 blowout win over the Avalanche on Tuesday.

Hertl also had four penalty minutes and two shots to go with the two point night. That's three goals and two assists in the last five games for Hertl. The 22 year-old has 10 goals and 16 assists in 47 games. Six different Sharks scored in the win while Brent Burns and Joe Thornton each picked up two assists.

Tomas Hertl had a goal and an assist on Saturday and now has six points in his last five games.

The talented 22-year-old struggled last season and earlier this one but now is playing on a line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski and he is starting to thrive. He scored the OT winner Saturday alongside Logan Couture as it was three-on-three. He now has seven goals and 21 points in 42 games and consider picking him up even in shallow pools.

Tomas Hertl led the Sharks’ onslaught on the Maple Leafs with two goals and an assist in their 7-0 win Saturday night.

Only six Sharks didn’t end up on the score sheet. After bursting on the scene in 2013-14 in his rookie season, Hertl has struggled to be a factor in the next two seasons. This effort was one-sixth of his production for the year, as he now has six goals and 18 points. Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns each notched a goal and an assist. Joonas Donskoi, Melker Karlsson and Matthew Nieto picked up the other goals. Justin Braun chipped in with three assists, while Joe Thornton Marc-Eduard Vlasic and Tommy Wingels had two apiece.

Tomas Hertl was put on the top line in practice Friday.

The forward should play alongside Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski Saturday and that is great news for his fantasy owners (as well as his family and friends who should have him in their pools). Hertl only has four goals and 15 points this season but expect a lot more from the talented 22-year-old.
Jan 9 - 10:17 AM

Tomas Hertl scored a goal in a 6-3 loss Monday night.

Hertl ended a five-game point drought and found the back of the net for the first time since Nov. 28. He has four goals and 14 points in 34 contests in 2015-16.

Tomas Hertl (lower body) is playing in Thursday's game against Toronto.

Tomas Hertl (lower body) took part in Wednesday's skate and may be ready to play Thursday.

He still could be a game-time decision, but said he felt much better. Hertl was a late scratch on Tuesday because of a lower-body injury that he initially suffered against Edmonton on Dec. 9.
Wed, Dec 16, 2015 01:21:00 PM

Tomas Hertl was held from Tuesday's match with Montreal due to a lower body injury.

Through 29 games thus far Hertl has put up 13 points and 35 hits, while winning an impressive 56.5% of his draws thus far. He may not be the flashy scorer he was when he burst on to the scene two seasons ago, but he's certainly a quality player in real life. We'll keep you posted on his status.

Tomas Hertl was moved to a line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski on Sunday.

He was shifted from center to left wing for the session. Hertl has recorded three goals and 13 points in 29 games this season, but he has been getting key roles lately.
Mon, Dec 14, 2015 01:31:00 PM

Tomas Hertl was centering the top line in practice Friday.

The Sharks need someone in the middle with Logan Couture out of action for a while after undergoing surgery on Friday. Hertl centered Joe Pavelski and Patrick Marleau and the young 22-year-old couldn't have asked for a better set of linemates on the Sharks. Hertl has only three goals and 13 points in 28 games but look for a lot more from him as he should get plenty of chances to show he is a top-six player.
Sat, Dec 12, 2015 09:23:00 AM

Tomas Hertl enjoyed a two-point night in the Sharks’ 5-1 win against the Flames on Saturday.

Herzl, who scored and assisted, was one of four Sharks players to record two points. He had gone five games without a point. Hertl’s third season is not going much better than his second, when he tallied 31 points and 13 goals. Thus far, he has three goals and 11 points. Marc-Edouard Vlasic (goal, assist), Tommy Wingels (goal, assist), Joel Ward and Patrick Marleau were the other scorers. Joe Pavelski got two assists.

Tomas Hertl had two assists in a 4-2 loss Tuesday night.

Hertl has two goals and eight points in 15 contests in 2015-16. That's a step up from his rough 2014-15 campaign, but Hertl is still capable of more.
Wed, Nov 11, 2015 11:17:00 AM

Tomas Hertl will skate between Patrick Marleau and Joel Ward on Friday night.

Logan Couture sustained a fractured right fibula during Thursday's practice that will sideline him for four-to-six weeks.
Fri, Oct 16, 2015 03:52:00 PM

Tomas Hertl scored a goal in San Jose's 5-0 victory against Washington Tuesday night.

Hertl has two goals in three games this season. It's certainly a very encouraging start after he struggled in his sophomore campaign. If nothing else, he's worth keeping a close eye on.
