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.
