SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Missing the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time in more than two decades hasn't altered the course San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson wants to take. Wilson said there's no need to tear down and rebuild a franchise that was a perennial contender for most of the previous 15 years. He believes a few key moves could get the Sharks back to that level next season when they try to avoid their first three-year stretch ever without a playoff berth. “I expect this to be a very good hockey team,” Wilson said. “I expect a team every year to compete for the playoffs. If we add the right things, players get back in their cycle, they’re able to do that. I think we’ll be a very good team next year. I really do.” The Sharks haven't been very good since making it to the Western Conference Final in 2019. They finished last in the Western Conference last season and took only small steps forward this season when they finished near the bottom of the West Division with 49 points in the first full season under coach Bob Boughner. Despite a season that started with training camp in Arizona and the first 12 games on the road because of COVID-19 restrictions in San Jose, the Sharks managed to get into playoff contention with a four-game winning streak from March 29-April 3. The season that went off the rails with nine losses in 10 games, including four on a five-game homestand against bottom dwellers Anaheim and Los Angeles. “These past years have been very difficult to take. It's not fun losing,” captain Logan Couture said. “Disappointing but I think it should give us some motivation going into next year. We all know we need to be better to a man in that dressing room.” Wilson said the priorities this offseason will be improving on goaltending that has been among the league's worst the past few seasons with Martin Jones handling the bulk of the load and adding a third-line center to take pressure off Couture and Tomas Hertl. BETWEEN THE PIPES San Jose struggled to get consistent goalie play, finishing in the bottom three in save percentage for a third straight season. Jones finished with a save percentage of .896 for a third straight season as he has been unable to get back to the level of play he had his first three seasons in San Jose. He was pulled early eight times in 34 starts. The Sharks could choose to buy out the final three years on Jones' contract with some veterans expected to be available before the expansion draft. Josef Korenar and Alexei Melnichuk also got some playing time late in the season and could be in the mix. “We need quality goaltending to be successful in this league,” Wilson said. "We will explore all avenues to make that happen. DEFICIENT DEFENSE The Sharks spent nearly one-third of their salary cap on veteran defensemen Erik Karlsson, Brent Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic with little payoff this season. Burns’ 0.52 points per game were his lowest since his first season in San Jose in 2011-12 and Vlasic struggled early and was dropped to the third pair. Karlsson finished with just 22 points and his points per game were barely more than half his career average. He has not played like the two-time Norris Trophy winner he was in Ottawa before being traded to the Sharks and signing a deal worth $11.5 million annually. Karlsson will be 31 next season and Wilson said he believes he can regain his form with a strong offseason. MARLEAU’S MILESTONE The highlight of the season for San Jose came on April 19 when Patrick Marleau broke Gordie Howe’s NHL games played record. That provided an opportunity to celebrate a player who became a face of the franchise during more than two decades in San Jose. Marleau wants to keep going next season at age 42 but after only nine points in 56 games, it’s uncertain whether the Sharks will give him that opportunity. “I feel like I still have a lot to give out there, a lot more than what happened this year for myself personally and points-wise,” Marleau said. EVALUATING EVANDER Evander Kane was the best player on the Sharks this season with 22 goals in 56 games despite going through a bankruptcy. Kane and the Sharks reportedly told a bankruptcy court they were considering voiding the final four years of his contract. Wilson said he expects Kane back next season. "That is his personal choice how he handles that,” Wilson said. “I know he loves being here, he knows how supported he is, and for him to play the way that he’s played is his appreciation for the support that he’s received from all of us in the organization.” ___ More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Josh Dubow, The Associated Press

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The Jesuit priest who presided over an inaugural Mass for President Joe Biden has resigned his position as president of Santa Clara University in Northern California, college officials said, after an investigation found he engaged in inappropriate, alcohol-fueled conversations with graduate students. The Rev. Kevin O’Brien, at the direction of Jesuit officials, has begun a therapeutic outpatient program to address personal issues, including alcohol and stress counseling. He had been president of Santa Clara University since July 2019 and was placed on leave in March. The university announced O'Brien's departure in a statement to the campus community on Wednesday that included messages from acting President Lisa Kloppenberg and board of trustees Chair John M. Sobrato. O'Brien had notified the board of his resignation Sunday and the trustees accepted it the next day. The private Jesuit institution in the Silicon Valley, founded in 1851 as the first Jesuit university in the West, is ranked as one of the top 25 schools for undergraduate teaching nationwide. California Govs. Gavin Newsom and Jerry Brown are among its alumni. In a letter to the university community dated Wednesday, O’Brien wrote that he hopes to return to active ministry as a Jesuit priest after he completes the four- to six-month outpatient program. He did not give details about his conduct, writing only that there had been “accounts of my behavior over the past year in certain social settings with adults that did not meet the highest standards of decorum expected of me as a Jesuit.” “After much prayer and thought and out of deep love for Santa Clara, I have concluded that the best service I can offer to our beloved university is to step aside now," he wrote. O’Brien has known the Bidens for about 15 years; they met when he was serving at Georgetown University, another Jesuit college. O'Brien gave the service at Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle, one of the most prominent Catholic churches in Washington, in January for Biden, who is the nation’s second Catholic president, as well as Vice President Kamala Harris, their families and elected officials before the inauguration ceremony at the U.S. Capitol. He also presided over services for Biden’s inaugurations as vice president. “This is a challenging time for Santa Clara, but Fr. O’Brien has shown both generosity and freedom in wanting to do what is best for the university,” said the Rev. Scott Santarosa, head of the Jesuits West Province that conducted the investigation, in a statement. “With care for the faculty, staff, students and entire Santa Clara community, he has decided to step down.” Sobrato's statement said the investigation found that O'Brien “engaged in behaviors, consisting primarily of conversations, during a series of informal dinners with Jesuit graduate students that were inconsistent with established Jesuit protocols and boundaries.” The dinners involved alcohol, Sobrato wrote, but no inappropriate behavior was discovered outside of these events. The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, known as SNAP, on Wednesday called for the Jesuits to broaden the investigation to other places O'Brien previously worked, including Georgetown University, to see if other students would come forward. “SNAP is alarmed with the limited amount of information that has been provided about the case and wants to see the probe expanded,” the statement said.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia's top health official was forced to resign Thursday after the city's mayor said he learned human remains from the 1985 bombing of the headquarters of a Black organization had been cremated and disposed of without notifying family members. Mayor Jim Kenney said in a statement that Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley decided to cremate and dispose of the remains of the MOVE bombing victims several years ago. A message seeking comment was sent to Farley's city government email address. Kenney said Farley's decision lacked empathy. The city's medical examiner has also been put on leave pending an investigation, Kenney said. Philadelphia police were attempting to evict the Black back-to-nature group from its headquarters in the city and bombed it, igniting fuel for a generator. The fire spread to more than 60 row homes. Among the 11 slain were five children. Kenney said he informed family members about what officials did with the remains. Thursday is the 36th anniversary of the bombing. “Today, I had the opportunity to meet with members of the Africa family and apologize for the way this situation was handled, and for how the city has treated them for the last five decades," Kenney said. Kenney said Farley took responsibility and resigned. The city has hired a law firm to investigate. The Associated Press
