John Scott will captain Pacific Division at 2016 NHL All Star Game

John Scott in NHL ASG & Trade to Make

Montreal Canadiens forward John Scott was traded from the Arizona Coyotes. This created a bit of an awkward situation because Scott was elected by the fans as the captain of the Pacific Division at the 2016 NHL All-Star Game. There was a lot of speculation regarding what would happen to Scott and if he would wind up going to the All-Star game. The league has clarified the situation by announcing that Scott will still captain the Pacific Division team.

"I am looking forward to enjoying a fun and unique experience at All-Star Weekend in Nashville with my family," said Scott, via NHL.com. "While being voted to the All-Star Game by the fans was not something I expected to happen, I am excited to participate in the All-Star events with my fellow players."

This situation is not completely solved yet. It remains to be seen if the league will allow the Coyotes to have another representative, since Scott is technically property of the Canadiens organization. Regardless of if the Coyotes get another representative (which they ought to), the NHL made the right decision in letting John Scott play at the All-Star Game. He got elected in even though he did not campaign for it. The NHL will likely enforce rules to make sure that this doesn't happen again.
