San Jose Sharks Pugilist Scott Adds Security

#483142281 / gettyimages.comAccording to, former Michigan Tech Husky defenseman John Scott is paid $700,000.00 a year to skate around the ice and beat people up. Scott plays an average of 6.44 minutes a game. Other than fighting abilities, Scott has no other hockey talents. His Corsi numbers aren't that good either. That’s quite the racket.

Sharks' John Scott here to 'patrol the ice'

John Scott is just like any other player skating with a new team – he wants to make a good first impression on his coaches and teammates. On the third day of training camp, that’s what he did in an intra-squad scrimmage. Scott took exception to Taylor Doherty’s thundering hit on linemate Eriah Hayes, gave Doherty a forearm shot, and as he turned to skate away was on the receiving...

Season Preview: @DudesOnHockey On The @SanJoseSharks

Since their inception, the San Jose Sharks have been my "Number 2" team. Some of my greatest NHL memories are rooted around the team and my strong dislike for the Detroit Red Wings has nothing to do with the 2008-09 back and forth they had with the Pens.I found the Dudes on Hockey podcast over a year and a half ago and have listened to Mike and Doug's coverage of the...

What Will The Sharks Dressing Room Be Like?

from Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea, From the outside, particularly from some media that aren’t regularly in the dressing room or coach’s office, the team has been on the receiving end of some pretty harsh criticism. Some of it is certainly warranted. The Sharks were unable to trade either Thornton or Marleau, and signing the pair to three-year contract extensions with no trade...

A Lot Of Toughness In San Jose

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, On Oct. 8, when San Jose opens the 2014-15 season against Los Angeles, it’s possible John Scott, Mike Brown, and Micheal Haley could be in uniform. The Sharks re-signed Brown, acquired from Edmonton last season, to a two-year extension. They locked up Scott and Haley on the free market. Scott is the most dangerous fighter in the...

Oh, San Jose. We had a chance here. A real chance to do something good for the game. And you had to go and pretend there's something of value left in what is the last of a dying species.

Report: John Scott Signs One-Year Deal With San Jose Sharks

Isles rookie Justin Johnson KO's John Scott much to the delight of everyone

Last night's game between the Buffalo Sabres and the New York Islanders had little meaning in terms of significance for either side.

Islanders Rookie Justin Johnson KOs Sabres’ John Scott

New York Islanders rookie Justin Johnson stands only 6’0″ 220 lbs but he took on Buffalo Sabres John Scott (6’8″ 255 lbs) in his first NHL Regular Season fight. Giving up 8 inches and 35 lbs is no small task, but Johnson KO’d Scott with a solid one punch. Many people who hate Scott will be rejoicing over this.

WATCH: John Scott gets knocked out by Justin Johnson

When referencing John Scott of the Buffalo Sabres, I choose to use quotation marks when calling him a “hockey player” because his level of hockey skill is an embarrassment even for the ‘goon’ label he’s tagged with. He’s basically paid solely to hunt, fight and injure opposing players, which is why what happened to him on Sunday afternoon is so great. During the first...

Buffalo Sabres: Should John Scott have a place on the roster?

Every team has their own version of him.  A player who is put out there for one reason: to scare the opposition.  Most teams would say their version of a ‘goon’ can skate, chip in offensively, defend teammates and bring more to the table than just intimidation.  The Buffalo Sabres’ John Scott, however, is not exactly in that category.

John Scott gets penalty for literally throwing a puck into the net
