Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Scores big goal in win over Isles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hertl scored his first goal of the year Tuesday against the Isles, tying the game late in the second period of what turned out to be a 3-2 win. He finished plus-2 with two shots on goal.

The Sharks had blown a 1-0 lead by allowing two second-period goals, but Hertl's tally with 1:57 remaining in that middle frame turned the momentum back the other way. He's off to a bit of a quiet start, having notched two points in four games, but Hertl's top-line assignment has included significant power-play time, and it's clear to any observer that he has the talent to capitalize in those situations even though he hasn't yet.

Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Will open season on top line
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hertl will begin the season on the Sharks' top line with Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.

This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, as the 22-year-old was productive in his role with the two veteran stars last season, recording 23 of his 39 even-strength points with them. It's a plum role for Hertl, who will be looking to crack that coveted 50-point plateau for the first time in what will be his fourth NHL season. To do so, the Czech native will probably need to increase his production with the man advantage, as he put up just seven of his 46 total points on the power play in 2015-16.

Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Cleared for Friday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hertl (knee) will be in the lineup against Arizona on Friday, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Hertl figures to be on the Sharks' top line along with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski as they look to return to the Stanley Cup Finals this year. The winger rehabbed his knee during the offseason after failing to appear in the final four games against Pittsburgh, which should motivate him to repeat his 11-point postseason run. The 22-year-old has improved in each of his first three campaigns and could once again exceed his career high of 46 points, especially if he slots into San Jose's power play.

Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Misses first preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

While Hertl (knee) took part in an intrasquad scrimmage Sunday, per Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area, he has yet to draw into a preseason contest.

Not much has been made of Hertl's injury, which dates back to the Stanley Cup Finals, but this latest report notes that the experiment of putting Nikolay Goldobin on Hertl's line during the scrimmage was a failure; of course, that likely has more to do with the rookie Goldobin doing rookie things, and not a poor reflection on Hertl. The 22-year-old's next chance for game action will be this Friday, when the Sharks play host to the Coyotes for their second exhibition contest.

Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Will miss World Cup of Hockey with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hertl (knee) won't play for Team Czech Republic at the upcoming World Cup of Hockey, NHL.com's Adam Kimelman reports.

Hertl is still recovering from the knee injury he sustained during last season's Stanley Cup Finals, and will now set his sights on returning to the ice for San Jose's first preseason contest Sep. 27 against the Canucks. At this juncture, there's no reason to believe Hertl won't be fully healthy when the Sharks' regular season schedule gets underway Oct. 12 against the Kings.
