Twitter playfully digs at John Scott being named all-star captain

Arizona’s John Scott talks to the media about being named All-Star Game captain, playing 3-on-3 hockey, and how he is approaching the experience.

Even on a day when he was a healthy scratch, Arizona Coyotes forward John Scott was the talk of the hockey world on Saturday afternoon.

Scott became a bit of a polarizing topic after the NHL announced he would be representing the Pacific Division as a team captain at the 2016 All-Star Game.

Many throughout the hockey world chimed in — or took a friendly shot — at the fans’ decision to vote in Scott as an all-star captain.
