#19 Larry Robinson Autographed Montreal Canadiens Home Jersey.
“Larry Robinson was drafted 20th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1971 NHL Entry Draft. Robinson would play 17 seasons with the Canadiens and another three with the L.A. Kings while becoming one of the greatest defenceman of all-time. Robinson won six Stanley cups, two James Norris Memorial Trophies for league’s most outstanding defenceman, and a Conn Smythe Trophy for most valuable player in the playoffs for the Canadiens.
The six foot four defenceman scored 208 goals and 958 points in 1384 career games. The most impressive statistic of Robinson’s career is that he is the all-time plus-minus leader at an incredible +730. In the 1976-77 season, Robinson was an unthinkable +120, which is second to only Bobby Orr’s 1970-71 season of +124. Robinson also holds the record of 20 consecutive seasons of playoff appearances.
Since retirement, Robinson has been the Head Coach of the L.A. Kings and twice the New Jersey Devils. He began his NHL coaching as the Assistant Coach of the Devils. In 2000, the Devils won the Stanley Cup with Robinson as the Head Coach. Robinson has his name on the Stanley Cup nine times, as a player, Head Coach, Assistant Coach, and Special Assignment Coach.
“Big Bird” was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1995. The Canadiens organization retired Robinson’s #19 on November, 19th, 2007.
Currently Robinson is back as the Assistant Coach of the New Jersey Devils.”
