Larry Robinson says he has resigned as coach of the New Jersey Devils. No replacement has been named. Team president and general manager Lou Lamoriello led the team at practice Monday morning, Newark Star-Ledger reported. The Devils are currently 14-13-5, good for 33 points. If the playoffs started Monday, they would be on the outside looking in.
update 11:53am, from the AP and CP via the Globe and Mail,
Larry Robinson resigned as coach of the New Jersey Devils on Monday because of stress and "horrible headaches," two days after his team lost for the seventh time in nine game. "A lot of things were getting to me. I want this team to be successful, but if I can't be at my best and it's bothering me healthwise, I can't do that," he said. Robinson was told the symptoms were stress-related. "This was one time I went for tests and hoped they'd find something," he said.
update 1:43pm, from the AP via Sportsnet,
Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said he will take over for Robinson on a temporary basis. New Jersey's next game is Tuesday, against the New York Rangers. Robinson, a Hall of Fame defenceman who coached the Devils to the Stanley Cup championship in 2000, returned to the team in July.
