John Tortorella Gets Gate Installed at Vancouver Canucks Bench

New Vancouver Canucks head coach John Tortorella had the Rogers Arena staff install a new gate at the tunnel that leads the players to their dressing room.

“It (open bench) freaked me out a bit. It’s like I’m coaching in the stands,” he told the media. “You’re practically coaching in the first row and I’m sure I’m going to piss off a few people. It’s proper. A lot of things go on.”

You can see the new gate behind Tortorella in the picture above. You can also see equipment assistant Brian Hamilton locked away behind the gate.
