The San Jose Sharks have the second-best record in the Pacific Division and the second-best record in the Western Conference. With all that success, the Sharks have indicated they intend to extend head coach Peter DeBoer shortly to a multi-year contract, according to Nick Kypreos on Hockey Night in Canada Saturday.
DeBoer, currently in his fourth season with San Jose, has been having an impressive season as the Sharks have a 43-21-8 record and his team’s 94 points is good enough for fourth best in the NHL with two of those teams ahead of them being just one point ahead of them with 95 points in the Calgary Flames and the Boston Bruins. Many people have picked San Jose to win the Western Conference.
The 50-year-old coach has a career record of 317-180-106 over 11 seasons in the NHL, which has included stints with the Florida Panthers and the New Jersey Devils.
