Sharks name Robinson associate coach
Larry Robinson, who helped Peter DeBoer guide the Devils to the Stanley Cup Final this year, will be named associate coach of the San Jose Sharks on Monday.

The New Jersey Devils aren't only losing a top player, but another man behind the bench.

Larry Robinson, who helped Peter DeBoer guide the Devils to the Stanley Cup Final this year, was named associate coach of the San Jose Sharks on Monday. Robinson is the second assistant coach to leave New Jersey in a matter of weeks after Adam Oates was named coach of the Washington Capitals on June 26.

Robinson, 61, was an assistant coach for New Jersey when it won its first Stanley Cup in 1995, and led the Devils to their second championship as coach in 2000 after taking over for Robbie Ftorek late in the regular season. He has had four stints with the Devils as either coach or assistant coach since 1999.

He also served as coach of the Los Angeles Kings from 1995 to 1999.
