LATEST | Former NHL All-Star hired by NBC Sports in broadcasting role

Published September 5, 2023 at 9:16

When the fan voting for the 2016 NHL All-Star Game opened up, no one would have expected Arizona Coyotes enforcer John Scott to have been selected to participate. Not only did he play in the 3-on-3 All-Star Game tournament, he was named MVP, which capped off a remarkable weekend and wrote John Scott's name into folklore.

Since retiring in 2016, Scott has stayed around in the hockey world and is the host of the 'Dropping the Gloves' podcast, but now he has big aspirations for his media career.

On a recent episode of his podcast, Scott announced that he would be joining NBC Sports Chicago doing pre and post-game work for Blackhawks games, but didn't say if he would be a part of all 82 games.

"Former #Blackhawks enforcer John Scott (@johnscott_32) says on his podcast that he will be doing Hawks pre & postgame work for @NBCSChicago. He did not say if he'd be there for all 82 games, but he will be part of the coverage. Comments come at the 30:05 mark."

The 40-year-old spent parts of eight seasons in the National Hockey League with the Minnesota Wild, Chicago Blackhawks, New York Rangers, Buffalo Sabres, San Jose Sharks, Arizona Coyotes and Montreal Canadiens, appearing in 286 games and tallying 11 points (five goals, six assists), while adding 544 penalty minutes.

Scott's done a very good job on the 'Dropping the Gloves' podcast, so there's no doubt he'll be able to adapt quite well to doing TV work this Fall.
