The NHL has fined BlueJacketsNHL head coach John Tortorella $25,000 for his conduct during a media availability following Game 5 of his team's first-round series.

In the wake of his team being eliminated from the post-season in five games by the Lightning on Aug. 19, Tortorella spent less than a minute in his media availability and took two questions before ending it prematurely and walking out.

“You know what guys, I’m not going to get into the touchy-feely stuff and the moral victories and all that,” Tortorella said after a question about his team’s experience in the Toronto bubble. “You guys be safe.”

BlueJacketsNHL Love Torts but common. Greatest job in the world. 25 grand means nothing to him but to most fans that is a life changing amount. Be better!

BlueJacketsNHL Does NHL coffers require a little deposit? What happened to Freedom of Speech said Torts!

BlueJacketsNHL Torts can be a bit of a dick but...

BlueJacketsNHL Why would they fine Torts? He gives the NHL some personality and the Blue Jackets some notoriety. It’s a win - win. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤔 BlueJacketsNHL NHL StanleyCup

BlueJacketsNHL Who the fuck cares. Boohoo media didn’t get to talk to a coach after a tough series loss. Everyone acts like they’re above it. Easy to not be invested when it’s not your job lol

BlueJacketsNHL Good! He needs to be nicer to people. That reporter didn't deserve that. Torts has been treating people like shit forever. He should be fired. I would not want someone like that to represent my brand. He's worse than Babcock and where is he? This bit of Karma is not enough.

BlueJacketsNHL Shouldn’t the refs be fined for horrendous officiating all season long?

BlueJacketsNHL Good!

BlueJacketsNHL sneakerdudeboy MARKCHE68042549 JasonCh49094891 Can you give me one chance?

BlueJacketsNHL Good..he should show some class in defeat!

BlueJacketsNHL I think he’s just a very generous guy and wanted to donate money to the NHL Foundation, but in a dramatic way.

BlueJacketsNHL Why i'm i not surprised lol

BlueJacketsNHL Should he just apologize and get nothing like Mike Milbury got for a far worse comment on air. Like him or not, Tortorella has this great quality : Honesty.

BlueJacketsNHL It’s about time

BlueJacketsNHL Love it. Torts is not above the law. We all have employment expectations we don't like. Suck it up, Torts.

BlueJacketsNHL This was unacceptable. His ego is so huge he thinks other people (media) trying to do their job don't matter and aren't worth his time. Pro sports would not exist and he would not have a job without the media. He has the maturity of a child and needs to learn to control himself.

BlueJacketsNHL lol 😆 Good Him that’s funny actually Maybe You Should Probably Keep Your Fucking Mouth Shout Torts When it comes to the bad Comments.

BlueJacketsNHL But you don't find the golden boys of Toronto, for their media pouting. Look like Marner ha this Xbox taken away

BlueJacketsNHL that has to be cumulative; he did it every single game. grinned, wouldn't answer any questions; bragged that he wouldn't answer any questions....

BlueJacketsNHL He’s being fined for not saying anything

BlueJacketsNHL Good for him!!!!!
