SAN JOSE, CALIF. (AP) - San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan has left the team to attend his brother-in-law’s funeral in Saskatchewan.

McLellan will be replaced behind the bench for Saturday night’s game against St. Louis by assistant Trent Yawney. Yawney has experience as a head coach, spending 103 games in charge of Chicago in the 2005-06 season.

The Sharks also have recalled left wing Brandon Mashinter from Worcester of the AHL and sent forward John McCarthy back to the minors.
