The San Jose Sharks have hired Hall of Fame defenseman and former Stanley Cup winning coach Larry Robinson as associate coach.

General manager Doug Wilson and coach Todd McLellan announced the move Monday.

The Sharks had been looking to add a former player who could help the penalty kill unit to the staff and Robinson fit the bill.

He won two Norris Trophies as the league’s top defenseman during a 17-year career with Montreal and Los Angeles. He won six Stanley Cups as a player and made the playoffs a record 20 consecutive seasons.

He also won three titles as a coach, twice as an assistant with New Jersey and as coach with the Devils in 2000. He was also an assistant on the Devils last season when they lost the Cup to the Kings.
