John Tortorella Threatens to ‘Walk’ After Cellphone Goes Off, Tells Cameraman That’s ‘a Major League Fine’ (Video)


New city, same John Tortorella.

The Canucks coach took the podium on Monday morning to discuss what he’s looking for out of his young players when they take on the Sharks in their preseason opener. It was a seemingly calm event, but the mood quickly changed when a cameraman’s cell phone started ringing during the middle of the coach’s media availability.

“That’s gonna be a major league fine, I tell ya,” Tortorella snapped. “I’m gonna walk. I’ll walk. If cell phones go off, I’ll walk.”

Check out a video of the outburst below, and head over to the The Vancouver Sun if you’d like Tort’s angry response as your ringtone, because, yes, that’s an option.
