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.

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.
