According to multiple media reports, the San Jose Sharks will retain coach Todd McLellan, but changes could be coming to his staff of assistants.

McLellan's current assistants are Jay Woodcroft and Matt Shaw. CBC's Elliotte Friedman reported Tuesday that former Sharks Mike Ricci and Bryan Marchment could join the coaching staff, but whether they join or replace Woodcroft and/or Shaw is unknown. Both currently work in different areas of the organization -- Marchment as a scout, Ricci as a development coach.

CSNBayArea.com's Kevin Kurz also reported Tuesday another possibility for the staff is former Chicago Blackhawks coach Dirk Graham, currently a Sharks scout.
