Sharks owner expresses disappointment in playoff loss, support for GM, coach

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks are bringing back coach Todd McLellan and general manager Doug Wilson for another season.

Owner Hasso Plattner issued a statement Wednesday saying he was disappointed with the way the season finished but that he supports Wilson's recommendation to keep McLellan.

The Sharks lost the final four games of a seven-game series in the first round of the playoffs against Los Angeles. They became the fourth NHL team ever to lose a best-of-seven series after winning the first three games.

The Sharks managed only two goals in the final three games in the latest playoff disappointment for a franchise that has the second-most points in the regular season the past 10 seasons but is still looking for its first Stanley Cup appearance.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
