Mar 18 - 1:18 AM

After spending the first 35 games of the 2015-16 campaign as a center, Tomas Hertl has shined as a left winger on Joe Thornton's line.

Hertl has 12 goals and 20 points in 26 contests since he shifted from center to the wing. Sharks coach Pete DeBoer doesn't see Hertl's time up the middle as wasted time though. "I thought his experience through the first [35] games playing center has been very beneficial for him. It’s allowed him to kind of get into the spot he’s in now," DeBoer said. "I don’t know if he would be there if he had started out day one with Joe and Joe. It’s been a process with him. He’s starting to play very good hockey for us now at the right time." Barring a significant injury to one of the Sharks' top forwards that forces them to shake up their lines, Hertl is likely to remain on the Thornton line for the rest of the season.

Hertl’s 11th goal came in the third period. While 132 shots in 53 games is a promising sign, Hertl only has 27 points, so the pieces haven’t all come together yet. Matt Tennyson, Chris Tierney and Joonas Donskoi (empty net) got the other goals.
Feb 14 - 1:31 AM

Tomas Hertl has recorded 11 points in his last 11 games.

It helps that Hertl has been playing alongside Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton lately. "First half, the goals weren't really coming," Hertl said. "So it was a little bit frustrating, because I had 19 games and no goals. That's pretty long. Now I just go to net, get bounces and score. It's way better. The biggest thing is that we're winning too." Hertl has plenty of offensive potential, but he's struggled over the last two seasons to live up to it. Those growing pains are understandable though and it wouldn't be surprising to see him finish the 2015-16 campaign on a high note.
