Hertl now has 14 points in 25 games thus far, which is remarkable given how much time he's missed due to injury. He has three points over his last three games as well, so now may be a good time to pick him up off waivers if you can. Feb 12 - 4:07 PM

He's expected to center the third line with Kevin Labanc and Joel Ward flanking him. Hertl has four goals and nine points in 17 games this season.

Tomas Hertl (knee) reportedly stands a good chance to return to the lineup on Thursday.

Hertl has been out of action since Nov. 17, but a return appears to be just around the corner. If he isn't back Thursday versus Edmonton then his first game since undergoing knee surgery could come after the All-Star break.

Tomas Hertl has been cleared for contact in practices.

Which ostensibly makes him day-to-day for his return. San Jose plays on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday next week before the All-Star Break kicks in on the 27th. The talented winger has posted four goals and nine points with 26 hits in 17 games so far this season. Stay tuned.

Tomas Hertl (knee) partook in an optional skate Sunday and hopes to be able to participate in full contact drills shortly.

Hertl was injured on November 17 and has not played since as he underwent knee surgery just before Thanksgiving. The talented winger had four goals and nine points in 17 games before his injury. "Every day its better and stronger. Now it’s almost full practices. Next week hopefully, full practices with contact," Hertl said. "We’ll see next week if I can start more pushing, more battles. It’s mostly coming back pretty fast now. I feel pretty good. I don’t want to skate anymore. I’m over it. I want to just play. It’s more fun than just skating (alone) on the ice and with no pucks and no goalie on the ice."

Despite returning to the ice, Tomas Hertl isn't expected back until mid-to-late February unfortunately as he recovers from another right knee surgery.

Hertle underwent a "minor procedure" per GM Doug Wilson in an effort to help prevent future issues. Hopefully it's exactly what the doctored ordered for the 23-year-old, and will be able to get back up to full speed before the playoffs.

Tomas Hertl's return to the ice remains uncertain but it could come sometime in January, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area.

Tomas Hertl will be out for weeks after undergoing successful knee surgery.

There was no structural damage and that has to be good news for the forward. GM Doug Wilson said that the surgery "is almost like an internal bracing, so it’s not repairing anything." The Sharks are hoping this will halt any further knee problems for the 23-year-old. Look elsewhere for now for your fantasy team and reserve Hertl.

Tomas Hertl looks to be out weeks rather than day-to-day after he sustained a knee injury Thursday.

Well at least it appears that he suffered a knee injury. The talented Hertl always seems on the verge of breaking out but then an injury gets in the way and that's that. He has four goals and nine points in 17 games this season.

The San Jose Sharks are still trying to determine if Tomas Hertl (right leg) will need surgery or not.

Hertl has had a history of knee injuries and a knee surgery already, which took place midway through his rookie campaign in 2013. He also injured his right knee during the Cup final in 2016. Hopefully for his sake, Hertl just needs to some quality R&R.

Tomas Hertl has returned back to San Jose so that he can have an MRI.

Meanwhile the Sharks will play in Arizona on Saturday. Hertl left Thursday's game due to an undisclosed injury that's probably related to his right knee, which has given him problems in the past.
