Sharks Injury Update: Hertl injures knee at development camp

By on 7/15/2014 07:00:00 PM

According to NBC Sports's Mike Halford, San Jose Sharks forward Tomas Hertl has a minor tweak to his previously injured knee following Tuesday's development camp.

Hertl had originally been hurt following a knee-on-knee hit with Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown in December. The hit resulted in surgery for the 20-year-old, forcing his rookie season to an early end.

San Jose GM Doug Wilson seems unconcerned with the injury, saying it's "just soreness from not skating". However, the club is taking the injury seriously, following his previous injury, with the goal of preventing further damage. 

Hertl had a total of 15 goals and 10 assists in the 37 games he played this season. He returned in time for the first round of the playoffs, where he scored two goals and made three assists, prior to San Jose's loss to the Kings.

  1. Of course Doug Wilson seems unconcerned, he doesn't give a damn. He'd rather introduce Ice Girl's and get rid of Drew Remenda to get the Sharks in a position to win the Stanley Cup than actually be concerned about his players. Gawd I hate Doug Wilson, as if trading the only other guy who speaks Czech a week(-ish) after Hertl scored 4 goals, Hertl should never have been hit (enforced/hurt) in the first place.
