Tomas Hertl (knee) partook in an optional skate Sunday and hopes to be able to participate in full contact drills shortly.
Hertl was injured on November 17 and has not played since as he underwent knee surgery just before Thanksgiving. The talented winger had four goals and nine points in 17 games before his injury. "Every day its better and stronger. Now it’s almost full practices. Next week hopefully, full practices with contact," Hertl said. "We’ll see next week if I can start more pushing, more battles. It’s mostly coming back pretty fast now. I feel pretty good. I don’t want to skate anymore. I’m over it. I want to just play. It’s more fun than just skating (alone) on the ice and with no pucks and no goalie on the ice." Jan 16 - 9:19 AM

Despite returning to the ice, Tomas Hertl isn't expected back until mid-to-late February unfortunately as he recovers from another right knee surgery.

Hertle underwent a "minor procedure" per GM Doug Wilson in an effort to help prevent future issues. Hopefully it's exactly what the doctored ordered for the 23-year-old, and will be able to get back up to full speed before the playoffs.

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.

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 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.
