John Scott has decided to trade in his skates for beer.
Well, sort of. Per Scott on his Instagram, "Perfect fall day for brewing some home made beer. I'm starting to dig the retirement lifestyle. I'm doing a Belgian farmhouse style saison." Wouldn't expect anything less. Last year's All-Star Game hero leaves hockey with five goals, 11 points and 544 PIMs in 286 career NHL games. Sat, Nov 5, 2016 06:09:00 PM

According to Elliotte Friedman, there will be no "substantive" changes to the NHL's All-Star Game format.

If you recall, John Scott was last season's unique write-in nominee to the game in Nashville. This season fans will have the opportunity, or shall we say be trusted by the NHL, to not have a repeat affair with this year's game in LA. Then again, All-Star games are supposed to be fun.

John Scott went home to Traverse City, Mich. on Wednesday.

Montreal GM Marc Bergevin asked Scott if he wanted to go back to the AHL or see his family for the first time in two months, so the choice was obvious. He may have played his last career NHL game on Tuesday night.

John Scott played 9:01 during his NHL return during Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Florida.

Scott took a minor and threw three hits, as he also saw 27 seconds with the man advantage. Hopefully this isn't the big man's last twirl in the bigs.

The Montreal Canadiens have recalled John Scott from AHL St. John's.

Scott has played in 11 games with the Arizona Coyotes this season, but he's been down in the AHL since being acquired by Montreal earlier this year. Scott has two goals, four points and 85 penalty minutes in 27 games with the IceCaps. As you'll probably remember, Scott was named the 2016 All-Star Game MVP. He has no fantasy value.

John Scott hopes that winning the All-Star game MVP will lead to him getting another shot in the NHL.

"I don't know if this changes anything. I believe I can play in the NHL. Maybe I opened a door." It's a great story, but Scott will remain a fourth line grinder who specializes in fighting. It doesn't look like he'll get an opportunity with Montreal.

John Scott is your 2016 All-Star Game MVP.

Wow, what a story from zero to hero. From derision to a lifetime of memories. You know the story by now. Scott didn't score during the 1-0 final win over the Atlantic division, but he was hoisted by his teammates in celebration of their, and his, victory.

There's a million reasons for the players in Sunday's All-Star Game to try to win.

The players are playing, among other reasons, for the grand prize of a $1M payout to the winning division. While Aaron Ekblad, Dylan Larkin, and Johnny Gaudreau are maxing out their Entry Level deals at a cool $925K, and John Gibson is only pulling in $721.6K this season (before jumping to $2.3M the next three seasons), John Scott is making bare minimum - $575K. The $90,909 each player from the winning squad will receives represents a 16% addition to one's earnings this season. By far the largest increase of any participating player. Still Scott isn't expecting much as he told Luke Fox of SportsNet, "Oh, gosh, no. It didn't even cross my mind. It's definitely not a factor." Imagine that, not being concerned over 90-large.

John Scott had quite the ovation during Saturday's Hardest Shot competition.

He didn't beat Steven Stamkos, who topped out at 103.9 MPH (or the best shot not by Shea Weber), but Scott gave the crowd something to get on their feet for nevertheless. Scott launched a brilliant 95.9 MPH shot in his second attempt, and set everyone's heart a-flutter - including his daughter's in the gif below.
