San Jose Sharks forward Tomas Hertl isn't focused on an extension as he enters the final year of his contract.

"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," Hertl said, according to's Tracey Myers. "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."

The 27-year-old is entering his ninth campaign with the Sharks after re-signing with the club for four years and $22.5-million in 2018. Last season, he scored 19 goals and added 24 assists in 50 contests.
