The NHL announced today that San Jose Sharks forward Tomas Hertl has been named to the 2020 NHL All-Star's Pacific Division roster, replacing teammate Logan Couture. NHL All-Star Weekend is set to take place from January 23 to 26 in St. Louis.
Hertl currently ranks second in points (34), second in goals (15), and fourth in assists (19) among Sharks players through 46 games. Hertl was recently named Sharks Player of the Month for December, his second such honor.
This is the first time in his career that Hertl is named an NHL All-Star.
The six-foot-two, 215-pound native of Praha, Czech Republic was originally drafted by San Jose in the first round (17th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft.
