Hertl is trying to rebound after a rough sophomore campaign where he was limited to 13 goals and 31 points in 82 contests. He certainly has a lot of offensive upside and he'll be worth keeping a close eye on in the days and weeks to come. Oct 8 - 10:41 AM

Tomas Hertl collected a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-0 win over Arizona.

It was another quality showing by the young forward, who saw 14:39 of ice time including a minute with the man advantage. Hertl is entering his third season in the NHL, but just his age-22 season as well. It's exciting to think that he'll recapture his 25 points in 37 games streak form two years ago, but 50 points over a full season may be more realistic at this time. Either way, improvement ought to be expected.

Tomas Hertl has been centering the third line recently.

It might be that Hertl starts the season as the team's third-line center between Tommy Wingels and Matt Nieto. He's got experience playing as a center in the Czech Republic, but he's been used primarily as a winger in the NHL. Hertl has a lot of offensive potential, but he was limited to 31 points in 82 games as a sophomore.

Tomas Hertl is starting to look like the player he was early as a rookie.

Hertl worked hard in the off-season and is slimmer but more powerful than last season. He had only 13 goals and 31 points last season but could hit the 50 point mark if he regains his early rookie form. Hertl has been playing center but could also play on the wing this season.

Tomas Hertl picked up a goal and an assist in the Sharks 4-0 win over the Canucks on Tuesday.

Hertl was everywhere on the ice tonight and was going to front of the net with enthusiasm. After a disappointing sophomore season, Hertl could be a nice buy low option as a bet to bounce back this year. Brent Burns, Paul Martin and Nicolay Goldobin added the other goals for the Sharks.

Tomas Hertl is feeling great going into this season.

He has made adjustments to his nutrition and has been working hard in the gym to rebound from a disappointing sophomore campaign. "He looks outstanding," GM Doug Wilson said. "He's lean. He's had a full summer of training without any setbacks. He looks really good. He's a very important player for us." He has been skating with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski in the early days of training camp.

Tomas Hertl (illness) was able to play Monday after all.

After bursting on the scene with 15 goals and 25 points in 37 games of his rookie season, Hertl has hit numerous road blocks in his second season. He has 13 goals and 31 points in 79 games.

Apr 4 - 11:52 PM

Tomas Hertl had two assists in a 5-2 victory over Dallas on Thursday.

Hertl snapped a five-game point drought. With 10 goals and 24 points in 60 contests, his sophomore campaign has to be seen as a disappointment, but he still has a lot of upside. He's not a bad guy to gamble on late in fantasy drafts for the 2015-16 campaign as he has the potential to have a big breakout season.
