In 2009-10, McLellan led the Sharks to a first place finish in the Western Conference, a third consecutive Pacific Division title and a berth in the Western Conference Final. The team finished in the top-five among all NHL teams in goals per game (3.13), power play (21.0 percent), penalty killing (85.0), faceoff percentage (55.6) and even-strength goal differential (plus-32).

McLellan came to the Sharks during the summer of 2008 following his three-year stint working under Mike Babcock as assistant coach of the Detroit Red Wings. During that span, no NHL team won more games (162) or earned more standings points (352) than Detroit.

In his five seasons coaching in the NHL with San Jose and Detroit, McLellan’s teams have won one Stanley Cup (2008 with Detroit), three Presidents’ Trophies (2006 and 2008 with Detroit – finishing second overall in 2007, tying the Buffalo Sabres for first in points (113) but having three fewer wins – and 2009 with San Jose), three appearances in the Western Conference Final (2007 and 2008 with Detroit, and 2010 with San Jose) and five division titles.
