SAN JOSE – Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said late Friday there is still no word on how much time rookie forward Tomas Hertl will miss after taking a knee-on-knee hit from the Kings’ Dustin Brown on Thursday.
Earlier on Friday, it was confirmed by a team source that Hertl will miss at least one month, and possibly much longer.

The NHL’s leading rookie scorer with 25 points, Hertl an MRI on Friday.
“There’s still a lot of swelling, so there are more tests to be done,” Wilson told CSNCalifornia.com. “It’s certainly is going to be a period of time … Until we get a couple more tests done, we won’t know what that duration is.”
Brown, who received a major penalty and game misconduct for the hit, will not receive any further discipline from the league, according to reports.
The Sharks host the Dallas Stars on Saturday.
