John Scott and Scott Hannan were made late scratches for Thursday night's tilt with the Maple Leafs. Mirco Mueller and Daniil Tarasov drew back into the lineup.

Unfortunately, neither Scott nor Hannan have much fantasy value. Hannan, has just six points, 24 PIMs, and 62 block through 54 games this season. And for all of Scott's bluster as a bruiser, has amassed just 81 hits and 75 PIMs through 32 games.

Just an FYI in case you have Scott on your fantasy squad. He has three points and 61 penalty minutes in 27 games this season.

Mar 6 - 11:32 AM

John Scott and Mirco Mueller will be scratched on Thursday night.

John Scott will tag in for Chris Tierney in Saturday's Stadium Series game versus the San Jose Sharks.

It'll be Scott's 25th game of the season, and he's compiled 46 PIMs and 58 hits during that time. "John Scott had a big factor in the game we played against L.A. last time," said Coach McLellan. "He played really good minutes, hard minutes. They're a big team, and John is that. That's called ingredients. You need different types of ingredients on any given night to win. The last time we used those ingredients we had some success."

John Scott will play in his 24th game of season on Friday night against Arizona.

The controversial tough guy will skate to the left of James Sheppard and Barclay Goodrow to form San Jose's fourth line. He ranks third on the team in penalty minutes with 46, 58 hits, and just three points on the season.
Feb 13 - 8:13 PM

John Scott scored the only goal for the Sharks in a 3-1 loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

Scott's goal was just his second of the season. He is not a fantasy option in any format as he is a scratch on some nights and is only really good for PIMS. It was a rough night for the Sharks top players who got stonewalled by the Flames netminder Jonas Hiller.
Feb 5 - 1:08 AM

John Scott, Matt Irwin, and Freddie Hamilton are all expected to be healthy scratches against the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

Only Scott has managed to develop much of any fantasy value so far this season, as he's accumulated 40 PIMs and 36 hits through 18 games.
Jan 10 - 8:42 PM

John Scott will play against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

Through 17 games he has 24 PIMs and 35 hits. Not much value there for the long time pugilist.
Jan 8 - 7:57 PM

John Scott will return from his four game suspension Monday night to face the Winnipeg Jets.

Scott is coming off yet another multiple game suspension after serving four games for an illegal hit on Anaheim Ducks forward Tim Jackman. Scott isn't much of a fantasy asset with just one goal and one assist in 15 games played, but he does have the ability to rack up penalty minutes with 24 on the season.
Jan 5 - 6:55 PM

John Scott has been suspended for four games for punching an unsuspecting opponent.

The incident occurred on Monday when he hit Anaheim forward Tim Jackman in front of the Ducks goal. Jackman was injured on the play and Scott is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the CBA. He will be eligible to return on Jan. 5 when the Sharks begin a three-game road trip in Winnipeg.

John Scott will have a phone hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Wednesday afternoon "for punching an unsuspecting opponent, Anaheim's Tim Jackman."

It was a pretty gnarly incident as Jackman came to a stop while Frederik Andersen covered up the puck, Scott spun his right (and top) hand around and butt-ended Jackman square in the jaw. Forcing him from the game.

John Scott might once again find himself in trouble with the league.

Scott spun around and caught Tim Jackman in the head or neck with his hand. Jackman was clearly hurt on the play and while Scott wasn't initially penalized for his actions, the league might decide that Scott should miss some time, especially given his suspension history.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 09:38:00 AM

John Scott drew an assist on Saturday.

It was the first assist for Scott in 120 NHL games as he now has five helpers in 246 career games. He does have a goal this season but he is definitely not known for his playmaking abilities, rather for his haymakers.
