newjerseydevils.com – Hall-of-Fame defenseman Larry Robinson's No. 19 will be retired by the Montréal Canadiens in a pre-game ceremony at the Bell Centre on November 19, it has been announced.

Robinson spent the first 17 seasons of his 20-year career with the Canadiens, and was a member of six Stanley Cup Championship teams in Montréal.

By the end of his playing days with the Canadiens, Robinson's name was at the top of nearly every offensive category for a Habs defensemen. He leads Montréal defenders in regular season games played (1,202), goals (197), assists (686) and points (883), and set team records in 1976-77 with 66 assists and 85 points.

The Winchester, Ontario, native played in nine NHL All-Star games and represented Canada in four Canada Cup tournaments. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1995, and will be the 13th player in Canadiens' history to have his number retired.
