Tomas Hertl picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.
There's no doubt that Hertl is a talented player, but that hasn't translated into a big offensive season so far. The 23-year-old had 10 goals and 22 points in 49 games last season, which is pretty disappointing. With Joe Thornton getting older and Patrick Marleau no longer with the Sharks, San Jose will need younger players, like Hertl, to start producing with more regularity. Sep 22 - 12:57 AM

Tomas Hertl could be San Jose's third-line center at the start of the 2017-18 campaign.

Coach Pete DeBoer may be leaning to pairing Hertl with Timo Meier on the third unit. "We're putting together training camp teams," said DeBoer. "What our lines are going to be are way down the road for where I'm at right now. We're implementing our system and our identity and our structure." Nothing is set in stone yet, but Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski could make up the top duo, while Logan Couture and Joonas Donskoi would form another.

Tomas Hertl could be in store for an increased role on the Sharks in 2017-18.

Hertl was limited to 49 games last season, but a full campaign alongside Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton as well as a suspected rise in power-play time gives him the potential for a big bounce-back effort. The Sharks need players like Hertl, Timo Meier, Joonas Donskoi and Mikkel Boedker to step up in 2017-18. It's a situation to keep an eye on at training camp because there could be plenty of experimentation when it comes to combinations.

Tomas Hertl was playing with a broken foot during the postseason.

Hertl sustained the injury on April 4. He still managed to average 19:18 minutes of play in the first round series and had two assists in six games.
Apr 24 - 5:18 PM

Tomas Hertl and his teammates couldn't muster up any offense in Friday night's 2-0 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

The Sharks took game one from Edmonton but couldn't produce any of the same production in game two of the series. They produced just four shots in the third period, and 16 during the duration of the game. This game two loss might force the Sharks to get Joe Thornton back into the lineup on Sunday for game three. Hertl led the way for the Sharks with three shots on goal.
Apr 15 - 1:32 AM

Tomas Hertl is a healthy scratch on Saturday.

Hertl is just getting a breather before the playoffs start. He has 10 goals and 22 points in 49 contests in 2016-17.
Apr 8 - 10:05 PM

Tomas Hertl powered the Sharks past Vancouver on Sunday night with a pair of goals in the 3-1 victory.

Hertl now has 10 goals and 21 points in 47 games this season. The 23-year-old, who notched 11 points in 20 post-season games last year, could be a sneaky pick for playoff pools despite a prolonged pointless drought this month.
Apr 3 - 12:01 AM

Tomas Hertl has gone 12 straight games without a point.

The Sharks meanwhile have been slumping lately with six straight losses. Further complicating matters is the fact that Logan Couture is now hurt. This would be a good time for Hertl to bounce back.
Mar 28 - 10:20 AM

Tomas Hertl replaced the injured Jannik Hansen on the top line Saturday.

Hansen was injured in the third period and that's when Hertl played alongside Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton. The Sharks recalled Timo Meier on Sunday as Hansen's status is unknown at this time and Meier, who played with the two Joes earlier in the season, could reclaim his spot. Stay tuned.
Mar 20 - 8:10 AM

Tomas Hertl registered an assist in a 3-1 win over Vancouver Thursday night.

Hertl is on a three-game point streak. He has eight goals and 18 points in 31 contests in 2016-17.
Mar 3 - 10:06 AM

Tomas Hertl’s score late in the third lifted the Sharks over the Maple Leafs as they won a 3-1 contest Tuesday night.

Hertl has not been particularly productive in his last 10 games. In that span he has earned only three goals and three assists with one multi-point effort. That came in a 6-3 loss to the Bruins February 9.
Mar 1 - 1:16 AM

Tomas Hertl scored his sixth goal of the season during Sunday's 4-1 win over the Devils.

Hertl now has 14 points in 25 games thus far, which is remarkable given how much time he's missed due to injury. He has three points over his last three games as well, so now may be a good time to pick him up off waivers if you can.
Feb 12 - 4:07 PM

Tomas Hertl will return to the Sharks' lineup on Thursday against the Oilers.

Hertl has missed the last 31 games with a knee injury. "I'm excited, for sure," Hertl said. "It's been a long time. I feel great. No problems at all. No issues, no pain." He's expected to center the third line with Kevin Labanc and Joel Ward flanking him. Hertl has four goals and nine points in 17 games this season.

Tomas Hertl (knee) has been activated from long-term injured reserve.

He is expected to return to the lineup on Thursday night versus Edmonton. Hertl has been absent for the last 31 games because of a knee injury.
Jan 25 - 5:21 PM

Tomas Hertl (knee) reportedly stands a good chance to return to the lineup on Thursday.

Hertl has been out of action since Nov. 17, but a return appears to be just around the corner. If he isn't back Thursday versus Edmonton then his first game since undergoing knee surgery could come after the All-Star break.
