Report: NHL may restrict All-Star Game to only ‘bona fide players’

The NHL may be working to ensure John Scott 2.0 never happens at the All-Star Game. Remember when Scott, a marginal NHL talent who was bouncing off pro rosters, was elected by fan voting to represent the Pacific Division at the All-Star game? The NHL did all they could to prevent Scott from playing but the now-retired enforcer ended up making the trip to Nashville and starring in...

NHL All-Star MVP John Scott teaches reporter how to fight

Fighting in hockey can be a polarizing topic but for veteran defenseman and NHL All-Star game MVP John Scott, it’s a huge part of how he has stuck around the game for so long. Every NHL team needs an enforcer and Scott is just that. Fighting on a pair of skates certainly isn’t your average brawl, however. There’s an art to it and there are certainly do’s and don’ts as...

John Scott opts to go home instead of report to AHL again

Montreal Canadiens forward John Scott has had one hell of a year. Scott’s gone from NHL roster player to joke NHL All-Star fan-vote nominee, to traded and demoted, to unlikely All-Star MVP and back to the minors. It’s been a roller-coaster season for the six-foot-eight enforcer. The Canadiens recently called up Scott to give the 33-year-old one more chance at playing in the...

Just call it another chapter in what has become a fairy-tale season for John Scott.Heck, he even joked to the media: “It’s almost like a movie, right?”With just a few games left in a campaign they would probably like to forget as quickly as possible, the Montreal Canadiens recalled the notorious tough guy, who has yet to play a game for the Habs since the controversial trade...

Canadiens call up John Scott for final three games

John Scott’s whirlwind season will end with a return to the NHL. The Montreal Canadiens on Sunday recalled Scott from their American Hockey League affiliate in St. John’s, setting up the 33-year-old to play in his first NHL game since Dec. 31.

The John Scott movie is 'going to happen' 'fairly quickly,' according to Scott

John Scott’s journey from fan-voted, NHL-banned enforcer to All-Star MVP seems like a natural fit for a sports movie, and now it appears that the “potential movie” his agent talked about Feb. 1 is getting closer to reality. Scott appeared on Sportsnet 590 The Fan in Toronto Wednesday, and told host Dean Blundell that a movie is in the works and may be coming soon: “The movie...

Could John Scott be the 'spark' the Montreal Canadiens need?

In the bevy of tweets congratulating John Scott on his MVP performance in the NHL All-Star Game and subsequent NHL First Star of the Week, there was the obligatory chirp from the Montreal Canadiens’ account — you know, the team who got him in a trade a couple weeks ago and then immediately assigned him to their AHL affiliate.The tweet brings focus back to the Habs themselves...

John Scott says NHL pressured him to drop out of All-Star Game

The NHL might have some explaining to do, if John Scott is to be believed. The former Arizona Coyotes enforcer was at the center of a recent controversy after he was selected as a captain for this weekend’s All-Star Game in Nashville. Scott was yo-yo’d between the NHL and the AHL before ultimately being traded to the Montreal Canadiens. The trade to the Canadiens — which...

John Scott voted All-Star Game captain

Every 75 to 76 years the earth experiences a phenomena that we call Halley’s Comet. It’s a sight to behold and is a once in a lifetime occurrence for most of us on Earth. The NHL may have just encountered it’s Halley’s Comet as John Scott, forward for the Arizona Coyotes, has been selected to the NHL All-Star Game as a captain for the Pacific Division.

Coyotes put All-Star vote leader John Scott on waivers again

There quite possibly isn't a player in the National Hockey League having a more bizarre season than John Scott. The six-foot-eight bruiser might be leading the NHL All-Star voting, but that didn't stop the Arizona Coyotes from placing him on waivers for the second time this season, Mike Halford of NBC Sports reported on Friday morning.
