We’ve probably talked the Tomas Hertl trade to death.

But what about what the San Jose Sharks got back?

Unless your head’s been under the water, you probably know that last Friday, the Sharks sent Hertl to the Vegas Golden Knights, along with 2025 and 2027 third-round picks, for 2023 Vegas first-rounder David Edstrom and their 2025 first-rounder.

The San Jose Sharks also retained on 17 percent of Hertl’s remaining contract.

There’s plenty to debate about the trade, and we’ve done it.

I reached out to four NHL scouts, all from outside the Sharks and Golden Knights organizations, for their opinions about Edstrom, the 32nd pick of the 2023 Draft.
