Biographical Info

A giant defenseman, Larry Robinson (HHOF ’95) was taken by Montreal in 1971 and won a Stanley Cup in his rookie year. He would win six more Cups with Montreal: in 1973, 1976 through 1979, and then in 1986. He played for the Canadiens for 17 seasons and is a two-time Norris trophy winner, as well as the Conn Smythe trophy. He holds the record for most consecutive seasons in the playoffs with 20 and his numbers are impressive for a defenseman: 208 goals for 958 regular-season points, as well as 144 points in 227 playoff games. Upon his retirement, he became an assistant coach for the New Jersey Devils and won a Cup with them in 1995. The next season, Robinson became head coach of the Los Angeles Kings, whom he played for from 1989 to 1992. In 1999, he went back to New Jersey and became their head coach halfway through the season, winning his first Cup as a head coach. He also served as head coach for the first half of the 2005/06 season before resigning for personal reasons. After returning to the Devils and serving in various coaching roles until 2012, Robinson joined the San Jose Sharks, where he is currently the Director of Player Development.
