John Scott, Jaromir Jagr Headline NHL All-Star Game Fan Vote Captains


Jan 2, 2016

The Internet successfully trolled the National Hockey League.

Arizona Coyotes enforcer John Scott, who has played in just 11 games this season while tallying one assist and 25 penalty minutes, likely received the most overall votes, as he was still leading Friday night.

The 33-year-old, who has spent time in the AHL this season, will captain the Pacific Division squad in the NHL’s new four-team, 3-on-3 All-Star format.

Scott is joined by Central Division winner Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks, Atlantic Division winner Jaromir Jagr of the Florida Panthers and Metropolitan Division winner Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.

The NHL will announce the remainder of the rosters on Tuesday, Jan. 5. The All-Star Game takes place Jan. 31, 2016 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
