John Scott Wants to Be Known for Being More Than a Fighter
GLENDALE, Ariz. — In the oversimplified court of public opinion, Coyotes forward John Scott carries two labels. He’s a good locker-room guy and he’s a skill-deficient goon.
Scott hates both labels.
“The guys who say I’m just a room guy, I guess I am, but (expletive), I’m a good hockey player, too,” Scott said Thursday after practice. “I’m not just a room guy. I pride myself on being a well-rounded player. I’ve transitioned from just being a two-minutes-a-game and fights guy to now I can easily play 10 minutes and do my role and contribute in other ways.”
