The Sharks general manager Doug Wilson has yet to speak with Hertl. Although Hertl is confident a contract is coming very soon. This is what he had to say:

"We'll see when I get there for camp and stuff, we'll see if we get some talks. If not, I'm not worried," he said. "I'm just going to play the best hockey and not think about it because if you're overthinking or [thinking] this is my contract year I have to score goals because it'll help."
"For me, it doesn't matter because I think I've proven I can be a good player, I've shown I can be a leader and I just want to do that and not think about my next deal."
"I'm not thinking about what will happen next season, will the Sharks extend me or if they don't want me there. I'm just going to play my best hockey and help my teammates," Hertl said at the NHL/NHLPA Player Media Tour on Thursday. "We have a lot of young guys, so I want to help them and just show them how 'Jumbo' Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski showed me how to be in the League, how to be a leader, how to play in the NHL."
"So I want to help them, you know? And hopefully I stay healthy and we'll see how it goes," Hertl said. "I don't think [about] if I sign right now or not. I just want to play the best hockey I can, even better than years before and help my team win."
