SJHN Daily: Hertl Enjoying Victory Lap Over Couture, Draymond Green Excited About Celebrini

Published

on

Logan Couture had some fun at Tomas Hertl’s expense yesterday.

Couture told the Mercury News that he and Hertl used to have a friendly bet when Couture’s Canada and Hertl’s Czechia took each other on in the World Junior Championships.

“Tommy has been too scared to bet me the last two years,” Couture said.

On Tuesday, however, Czechia upset Canada 3-2 in the quarterfinals.

“He could have won some money back from me,” the San Jose Sharks captain said, smiling. “I’m sure he’s a little disappointed.”

Hertl is still enjoying the victory lap though.

“I feel like every time I bet him, I’ve lost,” he said today to San Jose Hockey Now. “So maybe now, not bet him, and just enjoy the bragging. Bragging is so fun. We got a couple of Czechs so we can brag a little.”

That’s Filip Zadina and Jan Rutta. Hertl is hoping to keep the good times rolling with a Czechia victory over Sweden tomorrow in the semi-finals, and bragging rights over Fabian Zetterlund and William Eklund.
