Watch John Scott reflect on his All-Star experience and try not to cry

John Scott never expected to be named an All-Star, but in the final act of his career that's exactly what happened. The MVP reflects on embracing what began as a joke and his "boring" life after All-Star Weekend.

John Scott’s experience at the 2016 NHL All-Star Game was pretty magical, but there were certainly some bumps on the road to the storybook ending (more or less) of his hockey career.

The video above captures much of that story as well as covering a bit of the “To be continued ...” part.

It’s pretty emotional stuff, too, so maybe bring a Kleenex or five if you’re the type who might suffer from feelings allergies from this stuff. It’s OK, let it out.

(Watch this year’s All-Star Game this Sunday, 3:30 pm ET on NBC and the NBC Sports app)

Need to switch gears and laugh about Scott? That’s covered, too.
