NHL shop runs out of John Scott All-Star shirts
Thirty dollars is a small price to pay to own a John Scott All-Star shirt -- actually, it was apparently too small a price to pay.
To provide some context for that, shirts featuring Patrick Kane -- who has 73 points to Scott’s one this season -- are still available, albeit in limited quantities.
In a way it’s not really surprising as Scott certainly stands out from the crowd. The enforcer is far from the type of player you would expect to see participating in the All-Star Game. He got in because of the fan vote though and has an underdog quality to him, especially after Arizona traded him to Montreal and he was subsequently relegated to the minors.
If nothing else, his presence provides spice to the event and is a novelty that it seems some people would like to commemorate with a memento.
