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.

Tomas Hertl's previously undisclosed injury is a lower-body problem.

Jun 4 - 1:20 PM

Tomas Hertl (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Game 3 on Saturday.

While Hertl isn't the Sharks biggest name - he's not even among the top-five on the Sharks in that regard - this is a very tough loss for them. Hertl has been a significant contributor throughout the playoffs and played especially well in the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final. With the Sharks down 2-0 in the series, the task before them was already monumentally difficult, but to go forward without Hertl makes their situation even worse. The players that are considered San Jose's biggest names will have to step up in order to turn this series around.
