Scott was selected as a captain for the All-Star Game in an online vote, and eventually played despite some pushback from the NHL. Players from around the league congratulated Scott on his afternoon, and declared his triumph a win for the game of hockey.
Big congrats to John Scott on winning MVP... Couldn't have been a better end to a great weekend!— Matt Duchene (@Matt9Duchene) February 1, 2016
Best part of the all star game so far is watching John Scott out there. Great to see the big guy score a goal and have some fun— Rob Klinkhammer (@Bobbyklink) January 31, 2016
