Tomas Hertl scored a goal in the Sharks' 4-3 overtime win on Tuesday.
Hertl has two goals and three points in three games this season. Although he missed most of his rookie season due to a PCL and MCL injury, his rise has given the Sharks some extra scoring depth.

Tomas Hertl was back on the top line alongside Joe Thornton and Brent Burns on Sunday.

Hertl moved up from the third unit as coach Todd McLellan wanted Joe Pavelski to center the third line. Hertl was held off the scoresheet but had a goal and an assist in the opener. He is worth a middle round pick in drafts next season as he has a chance to explode offensively.

Tomas Hertl scored a goal and registered an assist in San Jose's 6-3 win over Los Angeles in Game 1 of their opening round playoff series Thursday night.

Hertl, who missed most of the regular season with a knee injury, played a solid game and scored his first career playoff goal. Brent Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic both had a goal and an assist for the Sharks, while James Sheppard added two helpers in the win. Patrick Marleau, Raffi Torres and Joe Thornton also scored for the Sharks.
Apr 18 - 3:56 AM

Tomas Hertl skated on the Sharks' third line during Wednesday's practice.

Take that with a grain of salt because San Jose keeps altering its lines. Hertl was playing on the top line before he suffered a major knee injury and he might end up back in that role at various points during the playoffs.
Apr 16 - 6:20 PM

Tomas Hertl returned to his original line on Saturday.

Hertl played alongside Joe Thornton and Brent Burns and look for the trio to play together once the first round of the playoffs get underway starting on Wednesday. He is worth selecting fairly high in playoff pools if you think that the Sharks are going far into the playoffs.
Apr 13 - 9:34 AM

Tomas Hertl (knee) will return to the San Jose Sharks' lineup on Friday.

Hertl emerged as one of the most exciting rookies in the league with his four-goal game on Oct. 8. He had 15 goals and 25 points in 35 games before he suffered a knee injury and needed surgery to repair his PCL and MCL. This will be his first game since Dec. 19. It will be interesting to see if the Sharks reunite their former top line of Hertl, Joe Thornton, and Brent Burns.
Apr 11 - 1:26 PM

Tomas Hertl (knee) is expected to be ready to play when the postseason begins next week.

He has been skating with the team since Feb. 26 and if he gets clearance soon then there's a chance that he will be able to play in one of the Sharks' last two regular season games. Hertl hasn't played since Dec. 19 and he underwent surgery to repair the PCL and MCL in his knee on Dec. 31.
Apr 10 - 6:45 PM

Tomas Hertl (knee) is out for the rest of the regular season but the San Jose Sharks expect the 20-year-old left winger to be in their lineup for the coming playoffs.

Hertl had 15 goals and 10 assists in 35 games before his injury.
Apr 5 - 11:02 AM

Tomas Hertl (knee) joined his teammates for practice on Wednesday for the first time.

He skated in a no-contact jersey, but his return to the ice is a positive sign. Hertl hasn't played since Dec. 19 following surgery on his knee. He could be available to return at some point in the playoffs.
Apr 2 - 2:57 PM

Tomas Hertl (knee) isn't close to returning.

"His rehab has gone very well and it's gone quite quickly," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. "But, I think anybody who watches him skate, we’re at no point picking a day yet or anticipating him returning." At this point it sounds like he'll miss the remainder of the 2013-14 campaign, but might return at some point during the playoffs, depending on how far the Sharks make it.
Mar 19 - 5:35 PM

The San Jose Sharks will not trade young players like Tomas Hertl or first round picks as the trade deadline approaches on Wednesday.

The Sharks are certainly good enough to challenge at this time for the Stanley Cup but they will not mortgage their future for a rental player. Hertl is unlikely to be back during the regular season as he needed knee surgery as a result of a knee-on-knee hit from Dustin Brown on December 19.
Mar 2 - 9:52 AM

Tomas Hertl (knee) might start skating again this week.

Hertl hasn't played since Dec. 19 and it's not clear if he'll return before the end of the season. He was hurt as a result of a knee-on-knee collision with Los Angeles' Dustin Brown.
Feb 26 - 12:37 PM

Coach Todd McLellan said that Tomas Hertl is "in the infant stages of rehab" as he tries to return from knee surgery.

Hertl was injured before Christmas as a result of a knee-on-knee hit from the Kings Dustin Brown. Monday is the first time that the two sides will meet since the incident so do not be surprised if someone goes after Brown. It appears that Hertl is done for the season as the recovery time could be another five-eight months.
Jan 27 - 9:10 AM

Tomas Hertl could end up missing six-to-nine months, according to an NHL team trainer.

The trainer also suggested that the best case scenario for Hertl would be just three months on the sidelines. With that in mind, it seems very likely that his rookie season, although the Sharks haven't suggested that yet. He has 15 goals and 25 points in 35 games this season.
Jan 2 - 10:37 AM

The San Jose Sharks announced that Tomas Hertl underwent successful knee surgery and that he's expected to make a full recovery.

There's no clear timetable for Hertl's return, though. His season still seems at risk, so it's up to your discretion if it's best to stash him on the IR or cut your losses.
