Scott's season is over, as he left the team Tuesday, LNH.com's Arpon Basu reports. He was given the choice between remaining with the team, or heading home, and he chose the latter, as he probably wasn't going to play much over the rest of the season.
Scott was summoned from the AHL St. John's affiliate Sunday. Even if Scott were to draw into the lineup, it shouldn't have much of an impact on the scorebook or in fantasy leagues. The veteran winger collected just four points in 27 games with the AHL affiliate, with most of his value coming from the physical nature of his play.
Scott was acquired from the Coyotes, along with Victor Bartley, in exchange for Jarred Tinordi, Darren Dreger of TSN reports. As if John Scott being an All Star wasn't comical enough, he has now been traded out of the Pacific Division, which he had been voted to captain during the All-Star Game. Scott remains an irrelevant fantasy option, but there is no word on whether he will have to take PK Subban's spot in the All-Star Game.
Scott was reassigned to AHL Springfield on Wednesday, Sportsnet's John Shannon reports. Scott was demoted Wednesday to make room for recently claimed Kevin Connauton on the Yotes' 23-man roster. Arizona will reportedly recall Scott in the near future, however, so that the 33-year-old winger can attend the 2016 NHL All-Star Game as the captain of the Pacific Division team in late January. Scott has tallied a single assist in 11 games with the Coyotes this season.
Scott cleared waivers Monday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Scott will remain with the team for the time being, but he'll likely head back to the AHL. The winger has appeared in just two games with the parent club this season, failing to record a point in both.
