Sharks prospect and 2012 first rounder Tomas Hertl's first goal of the 2013 World Junior Championships was an enormous one. With Team Czech Republic tied 3-3 in overtime of their round-robin game against Switzerland, Hertl took a pass from teammate Dmitrij Jaskin behind the Swiss net and tucked a quick wrap-around attempt under the pads of goaltender Melvin Nyffeler. Here's a look at the goal, thirteen seconds into this video:
As a result of their 4-3 victory, Hertl and the Czechs finish the preliminary round with a record of 2-1-1, good enough to clinch a spot in the medal round. They'll take on Sean Kuraly and Team USA in a quarterfinal matchup Wednesday at 1AM on the NHL Network.
