Description: San Jose second-year forward Tomas Hertl (knee surgery) was putting up monster rookie numbers before the injury (25 points in 37 games).
Insight: The soon-to-be 21-year-old Hertl is expected to play on the left wing alongside stars Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski which means if his right knee can take the punishment of a lot of minutes he could be a 60-plus point scorer. We say the team doesn't overuse him and he puts up a respectable 51 points.

Description: According to sharks.nhl.com, GM Doug Wilson wouldn't say that Tomas Hertl (knee) will definitely be back this season. "It's too early," Wilson said. "Ask me in a week or two or three.

Description: San Jose center Tomas Hertl has just two points (1 G, 1 A) in his last seven games.
Insight: The 19-year-old had seven goals and nine points in his first six NHL games, but he predictably cooled off. As a rookie, he'll have his ups and downs but is still worth owning in all leagues. Just don't overpay for what he did in the first two weeks.

Description: Youngster Tomas Hertl is expected to start on a line with veterans Joe Thornton and Brent Burns, according to a csnbayarea.com report.
Insight: The 19-year-old, 2012 first-round pick has a great chance to be relevant to fantasy owners playing with Thornton and Burns. He's a nice late round pick with upside, but of course with any rookie he comes with risk.
