Sharks' Hertl set for knee surgery

San Jose, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - San Jose Sharks rookie sensation Tomas Hertl is reportedly set to undergo knee surgery next week and will miss a minimum of one month.

According to the Mercury News, Hertl will have surgery sometime next week to repair damage caused by a knee-on-knee collision with Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown during Thursday's matchup at Staples Center.

Hertl, the 17th overall pick in last year's draft, has made quite an impression during his rookie campaign, posting 15 goals and 10 assists over his first 35 NHL games.
