Tomas Hertl could be moved to center again in 2016-17.

The Sharks would like to have Hertl occupying a spot down the middle, but he didn't click there offensively last season. If Hertl did end up centering the third line then he would lose a great deal of fantasy value after he was playing with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.

It sounds like the contract negotiations between the San Jose Sharks and Thomas Hertl were very smooth.

Tomas gets all the credit for that," Sharks GM Doug Wilson said. "He advised his agent and they were right on board with seeing how we do things. Very, very pleased and happy for what Tomas did for us." For his part, Hertl was happy to receive a bridge contract that should lead to a more lucrative contract if he continues to develop.
