Fourth period: Camp Sharks and Thomas Hurtl have begun contract talks. Any trade talks are premature according to TFP’s David Bagnotta. He added on the NHL Network that a contract offer for Hertl is coming soon.

“San Jose has certainly expressed a desire to keep him in San Jose, and they have made those wishes clear to Camp Hertl. But outside of that, there hasn’t been much as yet. There hasn’t been an official contract offer made for Hertl. That will happen, from what I hear, in a week or so. the next two weeks.

“If they can’t work toward a long-term extension, the sharks will be looking to move it before the deadline,” he said.

The long-term contract extension would be north of $7 million per season.
