Sharks expected to announce Peter DeBoer as coach

San Jose, CA, United States (4E Sports) - The San Jose Sharks are expected to name Peter DeBoer their next coach, Thursday.
He would replace Todd McLellan , who left the Sharks April 20 to coach the Edmonton Oilers.
"He definitely stresses good defense but he allows players to be creative in offensive zone," Sharks director of player development Larry Robinson said about DeBoer .
DeBoer was fired by the New Jersey Devils after 36 games last season, his fourth with the team.
In 2011-12, his first season, he coached the Devils to the Stanley Cup Final.
He also coached the Florida Panthers for three seasons from 2008-2011. In parts of seven seasons, DeBoer is 217-200-77.
