newjerseydevils.com – The Devils completed their coaching staff, naming Larry Robinson, John MacLean, and Tommy Albelin as assistant coaches, and Jacques Caron as goaltending coach.

They will join recently-appointed Head Coach Brent Sutter’s staff. The announcement was made by Devils’ CEO/President/General Manager Lou Lamoriello.

“Brent’s additions of Larry, John, Tommy, and Jacques as assistant coaches gives our organization a staff that has tremendous knowledge, experience, and success,” said Lamoriello. “We are all looking forward to the start of training camp."

MacLean is the franchise’s all-time leader with 347 goals and 701 points, and is best remembered for his overtime goal in the 1987-88 season-finale, which helped propel the team to its first-ever playoff berth.
