Hertl is in the second year of an eight-year, $65.1 million deal that pays him $8.137 annually. The 30-year-old has 15 goals and 19 assists for 34 points in 48 games so far this season.


Hertl has 218 goals and 484 points in 712 regular season games spread out over 11 NHL seasons. He was selected No. 17 overall in the 2012 NHL Draft.

The move to bring in Hertl is just one of a few big splashes made by Vegas leading up to the 2024 deadline, including getting defenceman Noah Hanifin from the Calgary Flames and Anthony Mantha from the Washington Capitals.

SAN JOSE – The San Jose Sharks and Vegas Golden Knights, in a potential blockbuster move, are reportedly working toward a trade that would send Tomas Hertl to the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Bob McKenzie of TSN first reported the possibility of the deal.


The Sharks will receive multiple first-round draft picks in the trade, per reports.


Hertl is in the second year of an eight-year, $65.1 million contract he signed with the Sharks in 2022. The deal carries an average annual value of $8.137 million and carries a full no-movement clause, which means that Hertl had to approve the trade.
