Tomas Hertl's Four-Goal Performance Inspires Amazing Nicknames (VIDEOS)

San Jose Sharks rookie Tomas Hertl is going to be remember this for the rest of his life.

The Sharks trounced the New York Rangers 9-2 on Tuesday night and Hertl was a big part of it, scoring four goals. Yes, you read that right. Four goals.

The highlight was probably his fourth goal to put the Sharks up 8-2. Watch the video above, we'll give you a minute.

"This is a dream. This is crazy. I've never scored more than two in a game, maybe," Hertl told reporters after the game.

"If Allen Iverson played hockey, he would have scored this goal. Steel yourselves, children's hockey coaches everywhere, to lose thousands of kid-hours going forward in the pursuit of this goal," wrote Grantland's Katie Bakes.

Here it is again.
