First, the Sharks locked up Logan Couture. Then they brought back Joe Thornton. Now, they've re-signed restricted free agent Tomas Hertl.

It's a four-year deal, the team announced Monday afternoon. Financial terms were not immediately known.

"Tomas took a big step forward last season, both on and off the ice, and we feel that he is just starting to hit his prime. He has the ability to be a dominant player in this League and proved during the playoffs that he can take over any given game with his combination of skill and strength. His capability to play both center and the wing gives our team some flexibility, and he has one of the most infectious personalities in our dressing room. We're excited he made this commitment to our organization," GM Doug Wilson said in a statement.

This past season, his fifth with the Sharks, Hertl played in 79 games and recorded 22 goals and 24 assists.
