Peter DeBoer expected to sign contract extension with Sharks

Ron MacLean, Nick Kypreos, Chris Johnston and Elliotte Friedman discuss the nets around the NHL, Jake Gardiner’s recovery from injury, coaching moves and much more.

Peter DeBoer is currently in the final year of his contract with the San Jose Sharks but the veteran bench boss won’t have to worry about where he’ll be working at the start of next season.

The team is expected to imminently sign the head coach to a multi-year agreement, Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos reported Saturday during the Headlines segment of Hockey Night in Canada.

DeBoer is enjoying his fourth and best season with the Sharks. Through 71 games, the Sharks boast the third-best points percentage in the NHL and are considered a viable Stanley Cup contender.

Overall, the 50-year-old is 317-180-106 behind the Sharks bench since joining the team in 2015.
