He made his first NHL appearance on January 20, 2007, against the Calgary Flames. Stortini was a -1 and received a 10 minute misconduct penalty in the third period of his first game. Stortini was leading the AHL in penalty minutes at the time of his call up. He was brought up to add some toughness to the Oilers after they had been banged around in the previous few games. The Oilers also wanted a "Heavyweight" in their line up to go against Calgary Flames heavyweight Eric Godard. He was sent back to the Hamilton Bulldogs after the game, but later was recalled. Stortini appeared in 29 regular season games for the Oilers during the 2006–2007 season. He went on to win the Calder Cup that season as a member of the Bulldogs.
Stortini scored his first NHL goal against the Vancouver Canucks on February 6, 2007 during the second period against goaltender Roberto Luongo.
Stortini scored the first goal in Iowa Stars (AHL) franchise history.
In 2009, a Kingston ON band formed, using Stortini as their name, because of the correlation between their hard styled sound, and his role as a fighter for the Oilers. The band would go on to write and record the "2010 EP" which was released on iTunes worldwide August 1, 2010 as well as distributed through the band themselves. The band has began to build a name for themselves in the hardcore community through Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.
