It sounds like the San Jose Sharks would like to lock up Tomas Hertl to a long-term contract.
Hertl can become a restricted free agent this summer and Sharks GM Doug Wilson thinks very highly of him. "Tomas is a really important part of how he played is exactly how we expected him," Wilson said. "He stepped it up to the next level. Looking in this league how the game is played, he’s got size, he’s got hockey sense. He’s a guy that is truly a difference maker. I think his game is only going to get better. He’s a big part of this franchise." Hertl had 22 goals and 46 points in 79 regular season games. He found another level in the playoffs with six goals and nine points in 10 contests.

Tomas Hertl needs a new contract this off-season.

Hertl can become a restricted free agent this summer and he wants to be back with the Sharks. He registered a personal best 22 goals in 2017-18 and he produced 46 points in 79 contests. Hertl was also superb during San Jose's playoff run with six goals and nine points in 10 outings.
May 8 - 2:30 PM

Tomas Hertl almost guaranteed a Game 6 win for the Sharks Sunday against the Golden Knights.

San Jose is down 3-2 in its second-round series against Vegas and will have to win to force a Game 7. After the Sharks' 5-3 loss in Game 5 Friday night, Hertl had this to say about his team's prospects. "I believe we’ll come back and force a Game 7. We’ll for sure come back, I believe. This is a strong team." Hertl has played well this post-season and he is emerging as a team leader. That said, it probably wasn't the prudest move to guarantee a win as Hertl's quote will surely be posted in the Golden Knights' locker room.
May 5 - 11:09 AM

Tomas Hertl scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Sharks were down 4-0 in the third period, but they were able to make it a one-goal game thanks to goals by Kevin Labanc, Hertl and Mikkel Boedker. In the end, they were unable to complete the comeback. Hertl has now found the back of the net in three consecutive games. He's up to six goals and nine points in nine games this postseason. The loss pushes the Sharks to the brink of elimination, as they trail the best-of-seven series 3-2. Game 6 will be played in San Jose on Sunday night.
May 5 - 1:05 AM

Tomas Hertl found the back of the net in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

Hertl's tap-in goal at the 5:35 mark of the second period extended San Jose's lead to 3-0 at the time. The 24-year-old has been red-hot during the playoffs, as he's collected one point in seven of the eight games he's played and he's currently riding a three-game point streak. Hertl now has five goals and two assists in eight games during the postseason. Marcus Sorensen, Joonas Donskoi and Joe Pavelski also scored for the Sharks in the win. This best-of-seven series is now tied up at two. Game 5 will be played in Vegas on Friday night.
May 3 - 1:13 AM

Tomas Hertl found the back of the net in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks.

The Sharks went into the third period trailing 3-1, but goals by Evander Kane and Hertl (with less than two minutes remaining) forced overtime. San Jose had a golden opportunity to pick up the win in OT, but Marc-Andre Fleury robbed Logan Couture with his glove. Moments later, William Karlsson scored for the Golden Knights. Hertl now has four goals and six points in seven games this postseason. The Sharks now trail the best-of-seven series 2-1. Game 4 will be played in San Jose on Wednesday night.
May 1 - 1:35 AM

Sharks coach Peter DeBoer believes Tomas Hertl has taken his game to another level.

Hertl certainly came up big in the first round. He scored three goals and four points in four playoff games and accounted for the series-clinching goal over Anaheim. "He would’ve gotten to this level earlier than this year if he had been healthy," DeBoer said. "He’s had some really bad luck with some really bad injuries. He’s healthy and he’s playing at another level, and I still think he’s got another level he can get to, too." It'll be interesting to see if Hertl can keep this up against Vegas in the second round. He had 22 goals and 46 points in 79 regular season contests.
Apr 20 - 5:21 AM

Tomas Hertl scored a goal in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

The victory means that the Sharks have swept the Ducks in four straight games. Moments after Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf turned the puck over in his own end, Hertl tipped a Marc-Edouard Vlasic shot by John Gibson to give the Sharks a 2-1 advantage. Hertl has now found the back of the net in three consecutive games. The 24-year-old is up to three goals and four points in four games during the postseason. San Jose will now face the Vegas Golden Knights in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Apr 19 - 1:15 AM

Tomas Hertl scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 2.

Hertl put on a nifty move to deke a Ducks defender before firing home a backhander in behind John Gibson. It's Hertl's first goal of the post-season and his second point bringing him to 20 points in 35 career playoff games. Logan Couture and Marcus Sorensen also scored in the win. The Sharks will head back to San Jose with a 2-0 series lead.
Apr 15 - 1:29 AM

Tomas Hertl posted an even-strength goal late in the third period to give the Sharks a short-lived lead on Monday in Chicago.

Hertl's goal looked like it would be the game-winner, but Patrick Sharp ruined that 1:57 later with a goal to force overtime. He has six goals with 11 points across 12 games in the month of March, his most goals for any month so far this season. He'll look to keep up the good work in the second end of the back-to-back in St. Louis on Tuesday.
Mar 26 - 11:26 PM

Tomas Hertl registered an assist in a 2-1 overtime win against Vegas on Thursday.

Hertl has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last five games. He has 20 goals and 43 points in 71 contests this season.
Mar 23 - 11:39 AM

Tomas Hertl scored a pair of goals, including the game-winning tally in overtime, in Wednesday's 4-3 victory in Edmonton.

Hertl entered the game with just one goal and one assist across the past 10 outings, so this multi-point performance was giant. It was his first game with two goals since Jan. 5 in Ottawa. Perhaps his recent skid had a little to do with the upper-body injury he had been battling. However, wait to see him produce points in a few more games before taking a chance on him outside of deeper fantasy formats.
Mar 15 - 12:52 AM

Tomas Hertl (upper body) is good to return on Thursday.

Hertl was sidelined for three consecutive games. He has 15 goals and 33 points in 57 games this season.
Feb 22 - 2:02 PM

Tomas Hertl (upper body) is still expected to return during San Jose's road trip.

"I anticipate he’ll play on the trip, I don't know when," coach Pete DeBoer said. "I don't know whether it's next game, the one after that or the final one." Hertl was moved to injured reserve on Monday, so he won't play against St. Louis. He is sidelined with an apparent right-hand injury.
Feb 20 - 4:41 PM

Tomas Hertl (undisclosed) has been placed on injured reserve.

Hertl has missed the last two games due to an injury he sustained on Feb. 13 against Arizona. He is traveling with the Sharks on the road and could be close to a return.
