Columbus - October 21, 2015 - John Tortorella was named the new coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday after the club fired Todd Richards, according to a report by Darren Dreger of TSN.

The Blue Jackets are 0-7-0 after losing 4-0 at home to the New York Islanders on Tuesday.

Tortorella, 57, leads American-born coaches with 446 wins. He is set to coach Team USA at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

Tortorella last coached in the NHL with the Vancouver Canucks in the 2013-14 season. The Canucks, who fired him after missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs, will receive a second-round draft pick from the Blue Jackets as compensation since Tortorella remained under contract there and was hired in-season.

He won the Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004 and reached the Eastern Conference Final with the New York Rangers in 2012.

Richards has a career coaching record of 204-183-37 with the Minnesota Wild and Blue Jackets. Columbus made the playoffs in 2014 for the second time in their franchise history. They lost an Eastern Conference First Round series to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games, then fell to 11th in the conference last season.

The Blue Jackets, who start a road trip Thursday at the Minnesota Wild, are retaining assistant coaches Craig Hartsburg and Brad Larsen, according to Sportsnet.
