WATCH: Lightning coach Jon Cooper mic'd up on Red Carpet

Lightning coach Jon Cooper might not have won the Jack Adams Award as the NHL's top coach on Tuesday night, but he won another completely made-up award: funniest coach.

Seeing as how Cooper left his job as a lawyer to become a hockey coach, he has always been cut from a different cloth than most coaches. He's a bit more open than most and as it turns out, funnier too. He soaked up the atmosphere on the Red Carpet -- which, to his pleasant surprise was actually red -- and the Lightning had cameras a mic to catch it all.

Is there any doubt that Cooper is not only a heck of a coach but quite the personality, too? No, no there's not.
