- San Jose Sharks forward Tomas Hertl has undergone surgery to repair damaged ligaments in his right knee. The Sharks haven't speculated on exactly how long Hertl will be sidelined, but he is expected to miss more than a month, jeopardizing his chances to play for the Czech Republic at the Sochi Olympics in February. Hertl was injured in a knee-to-knee collision with Los Angeles captain Dustin Brown on Dec. 19 at Staples Center. The Czech rookie is expected to make a full recovery from Tuesday's operation in Cleveland.
