Tomas Hertl picked up a goal for the Sharks in their 2-0 win over the Predators on Saturday night.
Hertl’s second season in the NHL has not gone as smoothly as his first, but he’s still been a pretty solid player. It’s a reminder of the trials and tribulations young players face. The goal was Hertl’s sixth of the season, to go with 13 points. Joe Thornton also scored (empty-netter), and added an assist. Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture and Tommy Wingels recorded helpers.

Tomas Hertl had a goal and an assist in a 7-4 victory Thursday night.

Hertl has six goals and 13 points in 27 games in 2014-15. He got off to a really slow start this season, but since the beginning of November, Hertl has 10 points in 15 contests.
Dec 5 - 11:24 AM

Tomas Hertl is projected to start Thursday's game with Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau has his linemates.

He sophomore forward has produced just four goals and nine points in 21 games this year. Marleau has been slumping as well, with zero even-strength goals in his last 16 games.
Nov 20 - 6:23 PM

Tomas Hertl scored the game-winning goal in San Jose's 2-0 win over Carolina on Sunday.

Hertl opened the scoring late in the first period and Joe Thornton added an empty netter to secure the win. After taking the NHL by storm last year, Hertl has come down to earth this season. The 21-year-old has just four goals and nine points in 20 games this season. His slow start doesn't diminish his long-term value. He is a good buy-low candidate.
Nov 16 - 8:18 PM

Tomas Hertl has bounced back after a slow start to the season.

Hertl saw his three-game point streak come to an end on Sunday, but he still looked good in that contest. "I think Tomas is getting better as the games go on," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. "You see him more involved." Hertl's not a bad guy to gamble on in standard leagues.
Nov 11 - 11:18 AM

Tomas Hertl had an assist in San Jose's 3-2 loss on Thursday.

Hertl got off to a slow start this season, but he has recorded a point in each of his last two games. He now has three goals and two assists in 14 contests in 2014-15.
Nov 7 - 10:08 AM

Tomas Hertl scored for the first time in nine games on Saturday.

Hertl was moved down to the fourth line but he picked up his third goal of the season on the power play with Matt Nieto and Tommy Wingels setting him up. He spent the start of the game with Adam Burish and Andrew Desjardins before moving up to the third line, switching with James Sheppard. Hertl will see second unit power play time but he could be moving up and down as a top-six and bottom-six forward until he starts scoring more often.

Tomas Hertl will start tonight's game against the New York Islanders on the fourth line.

It's unclear if he will play the entire game on the fourth line or if it will be just a couple of shifts. Sharks' head coach Todd McLellan is clearly trying to send his young forward a message with the demotion. "There’s a lot of really good rookies that come year two, maybe underestimate the league a little bit," said McLellan. "I’m not saying Tomas has done that, but the results are showing it." The 20-year-old forward has two goals and three points in 12 games this season.
Nov 1 - 4:53 PM

Tomas Hertl has only one assist in his last eight games and has not found the back of the net since October 16.

The young star of last season will play in only his 50th career game on Saturday and while he has only two goals and an assist in 12 games, he started off hot last year with 11 points in his first 12 contests. The Sharks have put him back on a line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski after he saw some time on the third line so it should be just a matter of time for him to break out. "It's a tough, tough league for a young player," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said earlier in the week. "I sometimes get the feeling that a lot of us think that Tomas is a six-year veteran. He played (37) games in the league last year. He's a rookie. He's going through the same thing that any young player in the league would go through. It's just that expectations for him are astronomical."
Nov 1 - 8:55 AM

Tomas Hertl was placed back on the first line with Joe Thornton on Friday.

Hertl was taken off the line with Thornton for Thursday's game as he started on the third unit with James Sheppard and Eriah Hayes. But at practice on Friday he was reunited with Thornton as Matt Nieto was on the other side. Hertl has huge potential but is off to a slow start in his sophomore season with only two goals in eight games.
Oct 25 - 9:51 AM

Tomas Hertl has been removed from the Joe Thornton line.

He's off to a slow start this season and is expected to start Thursday's game on the third line with James Sheppard and Eriah Hayes. Hertl has posted two goals and eight shots in seven games.
Oct 23 - 5:19 PM

Tomas Hertl found the back of the net in a 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Islanders Thursday night.

Hertl has two goals in four games this season. He's got the potential to flirt with the 60-point mark in 2014-15, although he's definitely still a gamble at the age of 20.
Oct 17 - 5:44 AM

Although it's not confirmed, Tomas Hertl will likely start the season playing alongside Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski.

We saw that combination during training camp and it certainly would be a good line for Hertl to be a part of. He got off to a fantastic start last season, but he suffered a PCL/MCL injury that forced him to miss most of the 2014-15 campaign. If he can stay healthy this season, then he'll have some fantasy value in standard leagues.
Oct 8 - 10:18 AM

Tomas Hertl potted a goal for the Sharks in their 2-1 loss in overtime against the Ducks on Saturday night.

Hertl is looking to improve upon a rookie season that showed great promise: 15 goals, 25 points in 37 games. We think he can double that output this season, but don’t forget, he’s still only 20 years old. Antti Niemi kicked aside 27 of 29 shots in the loss.
Oct 5 - 12:49 AM

It seems likely that Tomas Hertl will start the season on a line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski.

Hertl played primarily with Thornton and Brent Burns in 2013-14. This is an even more enviable line for the young forward and could allow for Hertl to breakout this season after his rookie campaign was derailed due to a PCL/MCL injury.
