Everyone, Tomas Hertl.

Tomas Hertl, everyone.


Now that you’re acquainted, watch the San Jose Sharks rookie score a nifty goal Tuesday night against the New York Rangers.

After zooming past Rangers blueliner Michael Del Zotto on the wing, Hertl approached the net with a purpose before making a between-the-legs snipe look effortless on NHL vet Martin Biron.

The trick shot tally was the 19-year-old’s — wait for it — fourth goal of the night. The Sharks won 9-2.

Hertl, drafted 17th overall in 2012 by the Sharks, also finished with a plus-3 rating and seven shots in just over 11 minutes of ice time.

Tuesday’s showcase was Hertl’s third NHL game. He left the rink with a league-high six goals and an assist.

Going out on a limb: I think he’ll stick with the big club, guys.
