SJHN has confirmed with new director of player development Todd Marchant that both Wingels and Sbisa are indeed joining the Sharks.
Wingels and Sbisa will work alongside long-time Sharks development coach Mike Ricci, under Marchant.
Wingels, 34, retired in Jul. 2020 after an eight-year NHL career, mostly spent with the San Jose Sharks. The fan favorite winger was drafted by the Sharks in the sixth round of the 2008 NHL Draft, and also played for the Ottawa Senators, Chicago Blackhawks, and Boston Bruins.
