Tomas Hertl has been called up by the Sharks.

Tomas Hertl has been demoted to the minors.

Coach Todd McLellan has been saying recently that Hertl had to recover from injuries over the summer, so he didn't have off-season that he needed to get ready for the 2014-15 season. He will get some extra playing time in the minors during the All-Star break before returning to the NHL.

Tomas Hertl has excelled at center since the Sharks put him there two games ago.

Hertl was placed at center on Tuesday when usual fourth line center Andrew Desjardins left the team for the birth of his child and coach Todd McLellan decided to keep Hertl there for Thursday's game as well, making Desjardins a healthy scratch. The experiment has worked out well as Hertl has looked good in the middle. "We need to slow things a little bit down with Tomas," McLellan said on Friday. "He’s played two games, and I’ve seen his legs move really good in the two games, and he looks confident, but it’s two games. Let’s see where we end up." Hertl has only eight goals and 16 points in 45 games this season but most players tend to regress in their second year in the league. Do not forget about him next season.

Tomas Hertl is expected to center Tyler Kennedy and Tye McGinn on the Sharks' fourth line Tuesday night against the Coyotes.

Jan 6 - 6:06 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 10:08:00 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.

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."
