John Scott signed by the Minnesota Wild on December 31, 2006. The 6’8” Scott quickly made a name for himself as a true NHL heavyweight. The Edmonton native played for seven teams over 10 seasons, finishing with five goals, 11 points, 544 penalty minutes and one great story to tell his kids. What started as a joke on the Internet turned into a life-changing few months for the popular enforcer. As a result of the online campaign, Scott garnered more votes than any player for the all-star game. Despite the league’s initial resistance, Scott’s addition to the all-star game made for one of the best hockey stories in ages. The 6-foot-8 behemoth would go on to score two goals in the three-on-three tournament and was voted MVP by the fans. Scott played one game after his fairytale all-star appearance with the Montreal Canadiens before returning to Michigan to be with his family.
