Hertl scored a power-play goal on three shots, dished an assist and added three hits in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Jets.

Hertl put the Sharks ahead for the first time at 3:25 of the third period, then added a secondary helper on Rudolfs Balcers' tally just 1:37 later. The 27-year-old Hertl is one of a few veteran stars on a rebuilding roster. He produced 19 goals and 24 helpers in 50 games last season, and he's set to reprise his second-line-center role to begin 2021-22.
