The Sharks extended the contract of coach Todd McLellan, TSN reported Wednesday. The length of the extension had not yet been announced.

McLellan has guided the Sharks into the playoffs during each of his five seasons as coach, reaching the Western Conference finals twice. His 220-108-88 regular-season record includes two Pacific Division titles.

This year, the Sharks were eliminated in the second round of the playoffs in seven games by the Los Angeles Kings. San Jose finished sixth in the Western Conference during the regular season.

The contract extension was widely anticipated. The Sharks are also expected to retain the entire coaching staff, including assistants Larry Robinson and Jim Johnson.

"I think they've done an excellent job. All of the components of it," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said after the Sharks were eliminated from the playoffs by the Kings.
