On December 18th, John Tortorella made American hockey history. He was the first American coach to win 500 games. Only the 24th coach ever to win that many games. He took the Blue Jackets from missing the playoffs to being one of the top teams in the NHL. Tortorella is known for his legendary press conferences and well, his love for casually dropping the F-bomb. Whether you love him or hate him, he's a true American treasure.
This one time, he tried to fight the entire Flames roster.
Good thing he had Ryan Kesler to back him up.
He was then fined and suspended for 15 days because of the Flames altercation. That sparked the #FreeTorts movement.
He's notorious for stuff like that.
He speaks for most hockey fans when he says something like this.
Someone made a cardboard cut out of him because why not.
But really, everyone loves his pressers.
But definitely not sweet.
But he stands up for his team.
Whether you love him or hate him, he's always entertaining.
