Blue Jackets sign Tortorella to 2-year contract extension

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The Columbus Blue Jackets have given coach John Tortorella a two-year contract extension.

The team announced Wednesday that Tortorella, who has led the Blue Jackets to the playoffs in his first two full seasons, has been signed through the 2020-21 season. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

The 60-year-old Tortorella is the franchise's all-time leader in wins, guiding Columbus to a 129-87-23 record since being named coach in October 2015. His current $2 million-a-year contract runs through this season.
