If you were busy watching playoff baseball or college football Saturday night, you missed quite the second act from Sharks 19-year-old rookie Tomas Hertl. Following his first career point in the season opener, Hertl finally filled the scoring column on his career stat sheet… twice. The winger opened the scoring 45 seconds in and followed suit with another less than seven minutes later, as the Sharks cruised to their second consecutive 4-1 victory. The first goal is above. The second follows below. That person he’s pointing to in the stands mid celebration? His girlfriend, who was celebrating her birthday. Awwwwwww.
That’s three points in his first two games. The future looks like it’s bright. #HertlPower is in full effect, people. Embrace it.
