According to Weekes, Tortorella’s deal is “in the neighbourhood” of $4 million per season for the next four seasons.

Tortorella, 63, stepped down after six seasons behind the Columbus bench shortly after the 2020-21 season.

Prior to that, he served as head coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers before a brief stop in Vancouver in a season that many Canucks fans would like to forget.
