Tortorella arrives in Vancouver, gets swamped by eager media

Jun 21, 2013, 7:14 PM EDT

John Tortorella arrived in Vancouver this afternoon to possibly accept the Canucks’ offer to be their next head coach.

What he may not have expected upon his arrival was a very eager throng of media looking to get a glimpse of him coming to town. Not only are still photos there to capture a look at him, but video as well thanks to Matt Lee of CKNW in Vancouver.

Twitter, Vine… It’s like Tortorella’s version of Hell on Earth to be captured via so many different forms of social media.
