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.

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.

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.

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.

John Scott has been scratched aginst his former Sabres on Tuesday night.

Despite having played just six games this season, Scott is probably sitting because Buffalo lacks a face-puncher who'd waste his time. Tye McGinn and Scott Hannan will also see the pine as Matt Nieto and Matt Irwin tag in, Coach MacLellan did not specify why he made the lineup changes. Nieto has as many points (six) as the other three combined.

John Scott didn't agree with his suspension.

Scott will have to sit out two games after leaving the bench and promptly fighting Tim Jackman. "It"s one of those things where he jumped me in the first and didn't give me a chance, so I was kind of just returning the favor," Scott said. "I asked him to fight. The situations were eerily similar, so that’s what leaves me scratching my head." Scott finished the game with 22 penalty minutes. He'll be eligible to return on Nov. 1.

The San Jose Sharks injected defenseman John Scott back into their lineup against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.

As a former Sabre, Scott could very well "renew pleasantries" with a former teammate via a fight. His main benefit is PIM, so this is a solid situation for him to contribute.
