NHL names Canadiens' John Scott first star of the week

Montreal Canadiens winger John Scott has been named the NHL's first star of the week.

What It Means:

In what was a bizarre scenario turned feel-good story, Scott not only captained the Pacific Division to a win on Sunday at the NHL All-Star Game by defeating the Central and Atlantic Divisions, but he also scored twice against the Central Division and was named the MVP of the tournament.

Scott was traded from the Arizona Coyotes to the Canadiens on January 15 and has yet to appear in a game for Montreal. He had one assist in 11 games for Arizona, but he posted solid possession stats. His Corsi For Percentage was 51.1, and his Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength was 8.7. Both numbers are well above his career totals.
