NHL-National Hockey League roundup (Reuters)

The San Jose Sharks announced Peter DeBoer as their new coach on Thursday. The Sharks had been searching for Todd McLellan’s replacement since April when it was decided that he would not return for an eighth season in 2015-16. McLellan, who had success in San Jose but could never lead the team to a title, has since been hired as Edmonton Oilers coach.
