Jack Adams Award
Peter Laviolette, Jon Cooper, Michel Therrien, Jack Capuano and Alain Vigneault have all done outstanding jobs this season and should be the leading candidates for NHL coach of the year.
Rangers head coach John Tortorella is one of three candidates for the NHL’s Jack Adams Trophy that goes to the best head coach in the league. It is not the award he wanted to receive.
To John Tortorella, there’s the wrong way — and then there’s his way.
Ken Hitchcock, Paul MacLean and John Tortorella have been nominated for the Jack Adams Award, which goes to the head coach who has contributed most to his team’s success.
