Tomas Hertl will be out for weeks after undergoing successful knee surgery.
There was no structural damage and that has to be good news for the forward. GM Doug Wilson said that the surgery "is almost like an internal bracing, so it’s not repairing anything." The Sharks are hoping this will halt any further knee problems for the 23-year-old. Look elsewhere for now for your fantasy team and reserve Hertl. Nov 24 - 11:38 AM

Tomas Hertl looks to be out weeks rather than day-to-day after he sustained a knee injury Thursday.

Well at least it appears that he suffered a knee injury. The talented Hertl always seems on the verge of breaking out but then an injury gets in the way and that's that. He has four goals and nine points in 17 games this season.

The San Jose Sharks are still trying to determine if Tomas Hertl (right leg) will need surgery or not.

Hertl has had a history of knee injuries and a knee surgery already, which took place midway through his rookie campaign in 2013. He also injured his right knee during the Cup final in 2016. Hopefully for his sake, Hertl just needs to some quality R&R.

Tomas Hertl has returned back to San Jose so that he can have an MRI.

Tomas Hertl sustained an undisclosed injury during the second period of Thursday's game.

The Sharks didn't have an update on Hertl's status after the game, so there's not much information to go on yet. Hertl was seen limping though, which suggests that it's probably a lower-body issue.

Tomas Hertl is thriving as the Sharks third line center.

Hertl is still seeing power play time but he is playing a 200 foot game and excelling. He led all Shark forwards in ice time Saturday. "I think he’s been outstanding," Sharks coach Pete DeBoer said. "He’s heavy, he’s hard. I thought he was all over the puck tonight in all three zones. He’s playing on the power play, he’s killing penalties for us. He’s playing great hockey." Hertl is playing alongside Patrick Marleau and both broke four game pointless streaks Saturday when Hertl set up Marleau for a goal. He has four goals and nine points in 15 games this season.
Nov 14 - 10:24 AM

Tomas Hertl potted a pair in the Sharks 3-1 win over Columbus on Thursday.

Hertl scored his first of the night on the power-play by stationing himself in front the net and banging home a rebound. He then finished off the Jackets with an empty netter to seal the win for the Sharks. He added two PIMs, two shots and a hit in the contest. Hertl scored 21 goals last season and is a candidate to exceed that this season. Joonas Donskoi scored the other goal for the Sharks.

Tomas Hertl scored in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

This was the first time these two teams have played against each other since going head-to-head in last spring's Stanley Cup Final. The Sharks got scored the first two goals of the game when Hertl and Patrick Marleau scored in the second period. Unfortunately for San Jose, the Penguins came back to score three unanswered goals in the third period. Hertl has two goals and one assist in five games this season. He's picked up a point in three straight games.

The top line of the Sharks hasn't scored a goal after two games.

The trio of Tomas Hertl, Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton has combined for two assists and no goals. Hertl has five shots, but no points to show for it so far. "I think we've created enough chances through the first two games to get three or four a night," coach Peter DeBoer said. "Those will eventually go in. You're not going to keep some of the guys off the scoresheet that have been off so far for us." They will look to get on the board on Monday versus the Rangers.
Oct 17 - 6:23 PM

Tomas Hertl is projected to begin the 2016-17 campaign as a winger on the Sharks' top line.

Hertl will play with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski. The Sharks have toyed with using Hertl as a center, but for now that seems to be on hold. He had 21 goals and 46 points in 81 contests in 2015-16.
Oct 11 - 9:36 AM

Tomas Hertl was back at left wing on the top line alongside Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski at Tuesday's practice.

"I thought they were a dominant line last year," coach Peter DeBoer said. "I thought they got better as the season went on. ... Why change it if it isn't broken, unless you have to?" The Sharks would like to eventually convert Hertl back to a center, but fantasy owners would greatly appreciate it if he stays with the Joes.
