  • NHL-'Slow-footed goon' Scott has last laugh at All Star game

    Lycos News1 Feb 2016

    (Reuters) - John Scott went from being an Internet prank to Most Valuable Player at the National Hockey League All Star game in Nashville on Sunday. Scott, known more for his fighting ability than scoring goals, helped Team Pacific with two goals to claim the first three-on-three, four-team All Star game format. “It was the coolest thing I’ve done in hockey,” Scott told reporters after scoring twice as Team Pacific defeated Team Central 9-6 in the semi-finals and then edged Team Atlantic 1-0 in the final at Bridgestone Arena. He also knocked down star Patrick Kane, before the pair feigned a fight. “(Kane) came right after me after he scored,” Scott said. “He was like, ‘let’s go.’ It was fun." The 33-year-old Scott was voted Team Pacific captain as part of an Internet campaign aimed at poking fun at the tough guy’s career. He has only five goals in 285 career games and 542 penalty minutes. The forward from Edmonton, Alberta has played in only 11 NHL games this season and was traded earlier this month from the Arizona Coyotes to the Montreal Canadiens. He was promptly demoted to Montreal's farm team in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Scott wrote in the Players Tribune magazine last week that the NHL tried to dissuade him from participating in the All Star game.
