John Scott and Stefan Elliott will be scratched from Saturday's tilt with Winnipeg.
While Scott has produced 18 PIMs in just five games thus far, neither player has done much of anything to inspire a roster spot. And it's debatable if Arizona ought to feel that way too. Nov 21 - 7:10 PM

John Scott will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Montreal Canadiens.

The veteran enforcer was one of Arizona's extras during the morning skate in Montreal. Stefan Elliott will be also sit on Thursday.
Nov 19 - 7:28 PM

John Scott recorded his sixth assist and the 11th point of his career in Thursday's 4-1 win over Edmonton.

And it was a primary assist, no less on a Stefan Elliott tally! All the least likely events, for sure. However what was entirely likely, is that Scott would record six hits in just over seven minutes of work. He now has five goals and six assists in his 278-game career.
Nov 13 - 12:51 AM

The Arizona Coyotes have waived John Scott.

It's entirely possible Scott could be recalled or acquired by another team, but it doesn't seem likely given the current fighting culture within the NHL. Should this be the end for Scott he will have accumulated five goals, 10 points, 408 hits, and 529 PIMs in just 276 games since the 2008-09 season. He never earned more than $700K in any given contract, according to General Fanager.
Nov 8 - 3:51 PM

John Scott won't face the Rangers on Saturday.

Scott has seen just two games thus far, but he has 12 PIMs. This seems oddly descriptive of what to expect of Scott moving forward - he'll rarely play but when he does, PIMs will rack up.

John Scott will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Colorado.

Antoine Vermette and Stefan Elliott will both miss the game because of injury. Scott is a good source of penalty minutes when he's in the lineup. He has 12 penalty minutes in just two games in 2015-16. He doesn't bring much else to the table.
Nov 5 - 9:04 PM

John Scott and Stefan Elliott will take another seat in the stands Friday night against Vancouver.

Bad news for those looking to pick up another 12 PIMs for Scott, but considering how little he plays anymore one should consider his contributions more like Halley's Coment. Watch out, don't miss it.

John Scott had 12 penalty minutes in Arizona's 6-0 loss to Boston on Tuesday.

Scott was handed a game misconduct and slashing minor for his actions against Zdeno Chara midway through the third period. Chara was able to complete the game.
Oct 28 - 10:02 AM

John Scott was the beneficiary of Martin Hanzal's injury, seeing his second game of the season Tuesday versus Boston.

As menacing as Scott may be, he simply doesn't have any fantasy value remaining as he doesn't get into the lineup with any regularity.
Oct 27 - 8:29 PM

John Scott won't suit up in Monday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The 33-year-old played his first game of the season against Ottawa on Saturday, but he wasn't much of a factor. He'll be a good source of penalty minutes whenever he plays. Stefan Elliott will join him in the press box.
Oct 26 - 7:35 PM

John Scott was in the Arizona lineup Saturday.

The Coyotes enforcer replaced Antoine Vermette in the lineup but certainly not on his line as Scott played a team-low 6:20, picking up two hits. He has fantasy value only in the penalty minute category and plays so infrequently that he really should not have a spot on your fantasy roster.
Oct 25 - 5:56 AM

Coach Tippett has opted not to make any lineup changes for Tuesday's tilt with New Jersey.

Thus John Scott, Stefan Elliott, and recent call-up Matthias Plachta will be made healthy scratches.
Oct 20 - 7:25 PM

John Scott and Stefan Elliott will each be healthy scratches against the Bruins on Saturday night.

Tough to believe, we know, but Scott has yet to see a game thus far. He may be a boon to any fantasy roster as a one-night pick up in reverse leagues, but there's no telling when he'll even play again.
Oct 17 - 8:23 PM

The Coyotes have scratched John Scott, Joe Vitale and Zbynek Michalek in their game against the Penguins Saturday night.

Michalek is a surprise scratch after scoring in the Coyotes season opening win against the Kings. Stefan Elliot has taken his place in the lineup.
Oct 10 - 10:07 PM

Although John Scott cleared waivers Friday afternoon, he is still on the Coyotes' roster.

That's to be expected, but we're passing this along in case you needed confirmation. Arizona waived Scott to gain the option to send him down later and not because of any pressing need.
