Larry Robinson has signed a three-year contract to remain as the San Jose Sharks' associate coach, according to a report in the Montreal Gazette.

The Montreal Gazette reported Wednesday that Robinson has signed a three-year contract to remain as the Sharks' associate coach. He will have director of player development added to his title. Robinson will not travel as much with the Sharks next season, according to the newspaper.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
