John Scott and NHL fiasco
The NHL decided to have a public vote for the captain of the 2015 NHL All-Star game, but things went sideways when an unknown enforcer named John Scott got voted in.
The league then tried to get him to step aside, but he refused, partly because he had all these T-shirts made up.
So they dropped him to the minors and traded him to Montreal Canadiens. making him ineligible to the captain.
Big mistake, a major public backlash has now forced the NHL to back down and allow Scott to be the captain after all
As for the t-shirts? He originally had them made for his teammates, but when he thought he wouldn’t be captain, he offered them for sale with proceeds going to charity. Now that he’s captain, they’ll likely be going to his teammates, so if you want one – get it quick!
