VANCOUVER, B.C. — The Vancouver Canucks fired John Tortorella just one year into the fiery coach’s long-term deal.
Tortorella, who signed a five-year contract last summer after being dismissed by the New York Rangers, went 36-35-11 and failed to reach the playoffs behind the Vancouver bench. Assistant coach Mike Sullivan was also fired.
Tortorella’s dismissal came just weeks after general manager Mike Gillis was fired. The Canucks then named former team captain Trevor Linden as president of hockey operations.
