John Scott scores twice, wins All-Star Game MVP
Enforcer John Scott, who was selected to the NHL All-Star game in an online fan vote, scored a pair of goals on Sunday and was named All-Star Game MVP.
Scott was not listed as a finalist for the award, and won as a write-in candidate. 10 NHL teams cast a vote for Scott on Twitter, including the Oilers, who voted for him over their own player, Taylor Hall.
During the first period, Scott took a pass from Brent Burns and found the back of the net to tie the game at 1–1. He received a standing ovation.
Later in the first, he laid out Patrick Kane and playfully scuffled with him seconds later.
In the second period, he converted a breakaway chance for his second score of the night.
Scott, 33, was the captain of the Pacific divison team.
