Sharks rookie Tomas Hertl leaves with injury

SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks rookie forward Tomas Hertl scored his NHL-leading seventh goal of the season 55 seconds into the game Saturday night against Ottawa, but he was injured with just over two minutes left in the second period in a collision with Clarke MacArthur and immediately left the ice.

Hertl was bent over with his head down, battling for a puck, when he and MacArthur collided. He was still being evaluated by the medical staff when the third period began and his return was called questionable.

Hertil was hit in the head by Alex Edler during San Jose's 4-1 victory against the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday. The NHL suspended Edler for three games for the hit.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
