Report: John Tortorella offered Canucks job
John Tortorella has reportedly been offered the head coaching job for the Vancouver Canucks.
The NHL's coaching carousel has been spinning out of control on Friday and it doesn't appear to be slowing down.
According to Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press, former New York Rangers coach John Tortorella has been offered the head coaching position for the Vancouver Canucks and that the two sides are close to a deal.
If Tortorella accepts, he would be replacing Alain Vigneault, who was just hired by the New York Rangers to replace Tortorella.
The Canucks are currently the only team in the NHL without a coach. Lindy Ruff was hired in Dallas on Friday, while the Rangers officially introduced Vigneault. Dave Tippett also agreed to a contract extension with the Phoenix Coyotes.
