It’s not every day you get a chance to pluck a future NHL all-star off waivers.
Waivers: JOHN SCOTT ARI CHRIS BROWN WSH
— Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) December 18, 2015
Scott has one assist in nine games this season.
The 33-year-old pugilist is hardly the player the NHL had in mind when it announced the 2016 All-Star Game in Nashville would be a 3-on-3 mini tournament. An enthusiastic effort, driven by a social media campaign, has pushed Scott to the top of the leaderboard in fan voting.
The other 29 teams in the league have until noon ET Saturday to claim Scott.
