The Columbus Blue Jackets say a family emergency will prevent coach John Tortorella from participating in the NHL All-Star Game this weekend.

Tortorella said in a statement he hopes to be back with the team next week. Assistant coaches Brad Larsen and Brad Shaw will take over team coaching duties until he returns.
