General manager Doug Wilson said in a statement that Hertl is expected to make a full recovery, but that there is no immediate timetable for his return to the lineup.

Hertl was injured Dec. 19 in a knee-on-knee collision with Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown.

The 20-year-old leads all NHL rookies with 15 goals and 25 points in 35 games.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
