After some bad news yesterday, the San Jose Sharks received some good news today.

Tomas Hertl entered the NHL’s COVID Protocol yesterday, prompting the cancellation of yesterday’s practice at Solar4America Ice at San Jose and the postponement of tonight’s scheduled match-up against the Vegas Golden Knights.

BREAKING: Hertl in COVID Protocol, Sharks-Golden Knights Postponed

This morning, San Jose Sharks players and staff took their daily COVID tests. According to the league’s daily COVID Protocol report, no new Sharks players were added. Hertl remains on the list.

This paves the way for the San Jose Sharks to resume practice tomorrow and play Saturday’s game versus the St. Louis Blues.

Per the Sharks: “As of Thursday afternoon, no additional tests have come back as confirmed positives. If the team and staff continue to receive negative results, the NHL and the NHLPA have approved the team’s resumption of practice on Friday. In such event, Saturday’s game against the St. Louis Blues will move forward as scheduled.

“The San Jose Barracuda have also received no positive test results and are also scheduled to resume practicing on Friday, and will host the Ontario Reign on Saturday at Sharks Ice at San Jose.”

Hopefully, the good news continues for the San Jose Sharks. They not only have to manage the league’s protocols but the County of Santa Clara’s as well. But this afternoon’s good news — which, as we know, in these pandemic times, can turn at the drop of a dime — is a step in the right direction.
