Hertl-mania is still running wild

Tomas Hertl-mania is running wild in San Jose.

A day after his four-goal game, the 19-year-old San Jose Sharks forward is still leaving an impression on social media. Perhaps more impressive than becoming the Sharks’ first player to score six goals in his first three career games, is this epic tribute to Jaromir Jagr.

And you thought you were impressed when Hertl tied Owen Nolan’s single-game goal record with the Sharks. With life skills like these, Hertl could easily be destined to follow in Jagr’s footsteps. They even have video of the legendary photoshoot on, a clearly awesome Czech sports website.

Here are some more of the social media highlights after Hertl’s heroic night:

— Hertl now has a different hat for every day of the year. Apparently, when you’re a rookie, you clean up all the hats from your own hat tricks.

— He’s no longer flying under the radar with the fans.

— Adam Burish snapped this picture of Hertl, who is clearly still giddy after his big game.

— Sharks employees are getting in on the act. The trainers dressed up in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles outfits.

— They should probably invest in one of these instead.
