The NHL says tough guy John Scott will still play in the all-star game, even though he’s currently in the minors.
The league says he will captain the Pacific Division team despite being traded from Arizona to Montreal on Friday.
Scott was voted by fans to play in the all-star game in Arizona and was sent to the AHL after the trade.
He has just five goals, six assists and 542 penalty minutes in 285 NHL games.
The NHL says Scott’s move to a different division and his demotion “created a unique circumstance that required review.”
