The Turcotte Controversy: Turcotte landed at the center of a bitter WHL controversy in January 1983 after he was traded from Nanaimo to Portland by his own father.
Real Turcotte, Alfie's father, brought his son to Nanaimo for the 1982-83 season after purchasing a share of the team and being named its head coach.
The deal was a steal for Portland, and Real Turcotte was clearly making the imbalanced trade in order to give his son Alfie the chance to play with a better WHL team and thereby improve his draft stock.
