Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Will not need surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hertl (knee) missed the bulk of the Stanley Cup Finals with a knee injury, but will not need offseason surgery, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.

Hertl's absence no doubt played a role in the Shark's inability to win their first ever Championship. With no surgery in his future, the winger should return to action for the 2016-17 season ready to resume his top end form that saw him tally 27 goals and 30 helpers including the playoffs. Fantasy owners could certainly do a lot worse than the 22-year-old.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hertl (lower body) will not play in Sunday's Game 6 against the Penguins, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.

Head coach Peter DeBoer did indicate that he's "making progress, getting better every day," however, potentially suggesting he could be available for Game 7. Melker Karlsson will likely continue in his top-six role subbing in for Hertl in Game 6.

Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Status quo with lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Hertl remains day-to-day with his lower-body injury, Shawn Roarke of reports.

The Sharks have managed to win two of the three games that Hertl's been held out of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Penguins, with Melker Karlsson ascending to the top-six group and playing aggressively on the forecheck. Look for Hertl to be reevaluated ahead of Game 6 on Sunday.

Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Out for Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Hertl (lower body) will miss Game 5 against the Penguins on Thursday, Wes Crosby of reports.

Hertl's absence is certainly a blow to a Sharks squad that's struggling to keep up with the speedy Pens and can't seem to find ways to beat opposing netminder Matt Murray. When healthy, the winger racked up 11 playoff points, including a pair of power-play goals. The 22-year-old will have to wait and see whether he gets another chance to hit the ice before the Sharks' season ends.

Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Questionable for Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hertl (lower body) has not been ruled out for Game 5 on Thursday against the Penguins, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

Coach Peter DeBoer told reporters that Hertl continues to improve and that he is not "ruling him out for any games". Even if the talented winger can return to the lineup, it may be too little, too late for the Sharks who need to climb out of a 3-1 series deficit. With 11 points in 20 postseason contests, the 22-year-old will certainly make an impact if he is healthy enough to return Thursday. If not, expect veteran Dainius Zubrus to continue logging minutes in relief.
