Sharks Get A Visit From The Professor

from David Pollak of Working the Corners,

Igor Larionov, the only player in the Hockey Hall of Fame to ever wear a Sharks’ jersey, is spending a couple days in San Jose at Coach Todd McLellan’s invitation.

“Igor and I created a friendship in Detroit,” McLellan said. “I asked him if he’d like to come out and spend some days with us in training camp. I think bringing the alumni back, especially of his stature, is real valuable. He’s got a very unique hockey mind and I like to bounce some ideas off of him.”

Larionov, who said he and his family have moved back to Detroit from Southern California so his 11-year-old son could participate in a stronger hockey program, said he and McLellan were at the rink at 6 a.m., going over video.
