John Scott has agreed to a one-year contract with the Arizona Coyotes.
Scott had four points and 87 penalty minutes in 38 games with the San Jose Sharks in 2014-15. He would be a great source of PIM if he played regularly, but that typically doesn't happen. Jul 10 - 7:28 PM

San Jose Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson said that the team won't bring back forward John Scott.

The news isn't exactly surprising, as Scott is nothing more than an enforcer. The 32-year-old had just three goals, four points and 87 penalty minutes in 38 games. With fighting decreasing across the NHL, Scott will have a hard time finding work.

John Scott isn't likely to be re-signed by the San Jose Sharks.

Scott would consequently be allowed to test the unrestricted free agent market on July 1. He's an enforcer that can't contribute much offensively. We wouldn't be shocked if he doesn't end up getting a one-way contract this summer.

John Scott will be scratched against the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.

Scott's had a nice season for himself, producing three goals, 85 PIMs, and 92 hits over 36 games. He's played 10 times since March 3rd, so he may be worth a spot-start should he return to the lineup.

John Scott will be inserted back into the lineup Monday night versus the Ottawa Senators.

Scott had been watching from the press box the last two games but will inserted back into the Sharks lineup Monday. He has picked up two goals and one assist in 32 games overall. He does have a whopping 75 penalty minutes, but regardless, he carries no fantasy value. Daniil Tarasov will be scratched to make room for Scott.
Mar 23 - 7:38 PM

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.
Mar 19 - 8:45 PM

John Scott was at practice on Friday after missing Thursday's practice with an illness.

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 7 - 9:19 AM

John Scott missed Thursday's practice due to an illness.

Scott might still end up being fine to play on Saturday. 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.

Through 25 games this season, the bruising forward Scott has just 46 PIMs and 62 hits. Meanwhile the young defender Mueller has yet to blossom as at the NHL level.
Feb 26 - 8:40 PM

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."
Feb 21 - 8:07 PM

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.
