San Jose Sharks coach Peter DeBoer will miss the game Saturday against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Consol Energy Center because of a personal matter, the Sharks announced.

Assistant coaches Steve Spott, Bob Boughner, and Johan Hedberg will handle the coaching duties for the Sharks (11-8-0, 22 points), who enter the game winners of four straight and in second place in the Pacific Division.

"We know what to do out there and we have a great staff taking care of that, I think," Sharks forward Melker Karlsson said. "It's not going to change too much, but Pete is a great guy. He's great to have back there, but the other guys will do a great job."
