"Mr. Tortorella’s actions in attempting to enter the Calgary Flames locker room after the first period were both dangerous and an embarrassment to the league," NHL vice president Colin Campbell said.

Tortorella’s suspension runs through Feb. 2. He will miss six games starting Tuesday at Edmonton. Tortorella is not allowed to have any interaction with the Canucks before, during or after games.

Tortorella blamed Flames coach Bob Hartley for starting his fourth line. Hartley was fined $25,000 by the NHL.
