Sharks set sights on Stanley Cup after Karlsson trade

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Coach Peter DeBoer embraced the high expectations for the San Jose Sharks after general manager Doug Wilson presented him two-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Erik Karlsson on the eve of training camp.

A franchise that perpetually has fallen just short so many times now has the pieces in place to win it all.

"It's a pressure to win. There' s no shirking that, there's no hiding from it," DeBoer said. "I'm not a big believer in you don't talk about the Stanley Cup. There's no hiding from that. That's what we're here to do. I think Doug and ownership have sent a message to our group that they believe we're one of the teams that has the capability of doing that. Now the journey starts and it's on us to get better every day and make sure we give ourselves a chance to win."
