Columbus Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella was named a finalist for the Jack Adams Award, given each year to the coach of the year in the NHL. He is honored alongside Bruce Cassidy of the Boston Bruins and Alain Vigneault of the Philadelphia Flyers.

John Tortorella is a finalist for the fifth time in his career. A win would give him three, which would tie him for the most all time.

Congrats coach!
