Hertl (knee) told reporters he hasn't begun skating but expects to be ready for the 2020-21 regular season, Sharks beat writer Sheng Peng reports.
Hertl suffered his injury back in late January, missing the team's final 18 games. Even if the Czech native is ready for Opening Night, he may not be able to replicate his 2018-19 campaign, when he topped the 70-point mark for the only time in his career. With the exception of that season, Hertl has never reached the 50-point threshold, which should be a red flag for fantasy owners.
Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said Thursday that Hertl (knee) is "well ahead of schedule" in his recovery from a torn ACL and MCL, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Even with the NHL season suspended and facing an uncertain date for play to resume, Hertl is already turning his focus to getting ready for training camp in advance of the 2020-21 campaign. Fortunately, the Czech forward seems to have endured no significant snags in his rehab since undergoing surgery in early February. He expects to receive full clearance ahead of camp this fall.
Hertl (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
As expected, Hertl moves to IR after being declared out for the remainder of the 2019-20 season with a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee. The Sharks' forward is expected to be ready for next season's training camp, but Hertl's absence is a big blow to San Jose's playoff hopes this year.

This is devastating news for the Sharks, who will have a tough time climbing back into the playoff race without the assistance of one of their best offensive threats. The 26-year-old, who is undoubtedly headed for injured reserve, will finish the 2019-20 campaign having tallied 16 goals and 36 points while posting a minus-18 rating in 48 games. Hertl should be ready for next season's training camp, but he can be dropped in all re-draft formats.
Hertl will not return to Wednesday's game against the Canucks, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Goodrow hasn't posted a point in that role while Hertl has been out.
Hertl (undisclosed) is ruled out of Monday's game against the Kings, Sharks beat writer Sheng Peng reports.
Hertl's set to miss his third straight game, and Barclay Goodrow is expected to continue centering the second unit in his stead. It's a considerable downgrade since Hertl has 21 points through 22 games, while Goodrow is pointless since the promotion. The Sharks return home Wednesday against the Jets, and Hertl will aim to shake his mystery injury by then.
