SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Larry Robinson will not be back with the San Jose Sharks next season.
A team spokesman confirmed Thursday that Robinson's contract expires in the summer and that he will not return. Robinson had been with the Sharks for five seasons, first as an associate coach for two years and then as director of player development the past three.
Robinson won the Cup six times as a player with the Montreal Canadiens. After mixed results as a head coach, he was considered one of the top assistants in the NHL. He will be 66 next week.
The Sharks reached the Stanley Cup finals last season.
