You’re going to be seeing a lot more of the man who lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to their winningest season in franchise history. Although he was entering the last year of his five-year contract, John Tortorella is getting a one-year extension as head coach of CBJ.
The t’s and the i’s on the terms of agreement have not been crossed or dotted yet. But after being named the NHL’s Coach of the Year, General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen would have to be a complete hoser to not give him a smokin’ deal.
