Tomas Hertl found the back of the net in the Sharks' 3-2 win over the Islanders Tuesday night.

It was Hertl's first goal of the season and the 50th of his career. He has two points in four games in 2016-17.

The top line of the Sharks hasn't scored a goal after two games.

The trio of Tomas Hertl, Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton has combined for two assists and no goals. Hertl has five shots, but no points to show for it so far. "I think we've created enough chances through the first two games to get three or four a night," coach Peter DeBoer said. "Those will eventually go in. You're not going to keep some of the guys off the scoresheet that have been off so far for us." They will look to get on the board on Monday versus the Rangers.
Oct 17 - 6:23 PM

Tomas Hertl is projected to begin the 2016-17 campaign as a winger on the Sharks' top line.

Hertl will play with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski. The Sharks have toyed with using Hertl as a center, but for now that seems to be on hold. He had 21 goals and 46 points in 81 contests in 2015-16.

Tomas Hertl was back at left wing on the top line alongside Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski at Tuesday's practice.

"I thought they were a dominant line last year," coach Peter DeBoer said. "I thought they got better as the season went on. ... Why change it if it isn't broken, unless you have to?" The Sharks would like to eventually convert Hertl back to a center, but fantasy owners would greatly appreciate it if he stays with the Joes.

Tomas Hertl looked as if he was his old self in Friday's pre-season game.

Hertl injured his knee in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final and finally returned to action Friday where he scored and looked quite good. "I feel [my] knee was no problem," Hertl said. "Just a little bit after [the first period] my legs [were] a little bit sore, but knee was totally fine. ... No problem, knee was totally fine." That has to be great news for Hertl fantasy owners who should expect a 55-plus point season from the talented winger/center.

San Jose's preseason game against Arizona Friday night will be Tomas Hertl's first game since injuring his knee during the Stanley Cup Final.

"It’s definitely a test on his knee. He missed the World Cup because of it, and obviously missed the finals last year and has rehabbed hard all summer," Sharks coach Pete DeBoer said. "It’s a good step for him towards getting back here healthy." Hertl is projected to play on a line with Kevin Labanc and Marcus Sorensen. Hertl will also be serving as a center, which is consistent with the role he's had in training camp thus far, but might not be where he ends up. From a fantasy perspective he'd probably be better off as a left winger because then he could play with Joe Thornton instead of center the third line.

Tomas Hertl (knee) was able to fully participate in the first day of training camp.

Hertl's knee prevented him from representing the Czech Republic in the World Cup, but it sounds like it's a non-issue now. "I feel really good and I’m ready for the season," Hertl said. "Nothing the past two or three weeks [bothers] me. I can turn, I can hit. I can do whatever. I think it’s ready. I have [no] problem lately." He had 21 goals and 46 points in 81 contests in 2015-16.
Sep 23 - 5:33 PM

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.
Sep 6 - 3:25 PM

Tomas Hertl is expected to be ready for the start of Sharks training camp on September 23rd.

Hertl suffered a knee injury in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against Pittsburgh and was unable to return to the series. On Saturday, Hertl pulled out of the upcoming World Cup because he wanted to be ready for the regular season. According to CSN Bay Area, Hertl should be ready for training camp, which means his fantasy stock shouldn't be affected.
Sep 4 - 10:57 AM

Tomas Hertl has reportedly pulled out of the World Cup.

It's another big blow for the Czech Republic, as they've already lost David Krejci and Radko Gudas to injuries as well. It's unclear what injury Hertl is dealing with, but he did hurt his knee in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against Pittsburgh.
Sep 3 - 5:56 PM

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

Hertl ended up signing a two-year, $6 million deal on Wednesday. "For him to step up and say ‘Doug, I want to get this done,’ we got it done very quickly. 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.
