From Slavia directly to the NHL

Tomáš Hertl - biography

Known as an exceptional talent from his childhood, Tomáš Hertl has unfortunately been struggling with health issues throughout his whole career. At age 19 he joined the ranks of Czech Extraliga stars and earned himself a nomination to his first senior world championship.

The next logical step was the NHL where he became one of the first players in San Jose’s history to jump directly into the world’s most famous hockey league without spending time on the farm team. Over the years, he has gained the status of an indispensable player with the Sharks. In 2016 the team made it to the Stanley Cup finals where they faced off with Pittsburgh. He is one of the most popular Czech players, thanks to his happy nature and willingness to play for the national team.
