San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan will be on the bench at the 2012 NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa, thanks to the Canucks' 2-1 loss to the Panthers Monday.

McLellan beat out Vancouver's Alain Vigneault for the final coaching spot.

Last season, a coin flip decided the team assignment for coaches, but now points percentage is the deciding factor.

McLellan's Sharks are 23-11-4 heading in to Tuesday's game in Minnesota.
