Listen to Torts talk about respecting the U.S. Flag…Damn Right!
John Tortorella loves America. His son serves in our military so he doesn’t take to kindly to any disrespect to the U.S. Flag!
In an interview with Linda Cohn of ESPN, here is what he told her via the NYDN:
Tortorella, the fiery former Rangers coach who is leading the U.S. squad during the two-week tournament in Toronto, told ESPN on Tuesday that players who take a seat during the national anthem can forget about representing their country on the ice.
“If any of my players sit on the bench for the national anthem, they will sit there the rest of the game,” Tortorella said.

A Proud Family
Dominick Tortorella is serving in the military and the family is very proud of that. Here is his sister’s tweet to him.
Proud sister of an Army Ranger. U will always be my little brother that I will worry about everyday. ?? pic.twitter.com/EiK1NBqJxS
