John Scott was never supposed to be a superstar. He was a career journeyman, going from team to team as needed. He wasn't an elite goal scorer, but he was big, and he wasn't afraid to back down from a fight. As his new memoir shows, he is also a giant teddy bear of a man.

Somewhere along the way, NHL fans decided to show their appreciation of his career and personality (and maybe just a hint of irony) and made him the Fan Choice Winner for a spot in the 2016 NHL All Star Game. Unfortunately, Scott's road to the game wasn't nearly as smooth as it could have been.

The NHL decided that John Scott's votes were influenced by fans for the wrong reason, and did everything in their power to bar him from playing in the game. After much backlash, John Scott DID play, and was even named captain of his team. Not only that, he scored two goals and was named MVP. It all goes to show, sometimes good things DO happen to good people, even a guy like him. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
