SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson has officially announced that Todd McLellan will return next season as coach.

While there were no indications that McLellan would not be back for a fifth season in San Jose, there was no public announcement until Monday. McLellan said he could be making changes to his staff and had a list of potential assistants he wanted to talk to.

Wilson said the major change he wanted from the team was going from one that was ``passive and reactive'' to one that would be ``aggressive and proactive'' next season.
