SAN JOSE -- Sharks rookie Tomas Hertl left Saturday night's game against the Ottawa Senators with about three minutes remaining in the second period after colliding with forward Clarke MacArthur in the slot in front of the visiting team's net.

Hertl did not return in San Jose's 3-2 victory, but coach Todd McLellan indicated after the game that he did not consider the problem serious and that Hertl could be in the lineup Tuesday night in St. Louis.

Hertl was cutting toward the slot with the puck when he appeared to lose his balance and fell awkwardly into MacArthur.

The 19-year-old forward from the Czech Republic scored his NHL-leading seventh goal of the season 55 seconds into the game.
