NHL All-Star Game MVP John Scott Is The Hero We All Need

He went from journeyman enforcer to NHL All-Star celebrity overnight. 

John Scott was voted in by fans to the All-Star game, despite his lack of typical All-Star stats. 

The NHL tried to ban him from the game, but it only made him more popular.

Scott scored a pair of goals,

got into a "fight,"

was hoisted up by his teammates,

won the All-Star game MVP,

accepted a $1 million check,

dished out some hugs

and spent time with family. 

Not bad for a guy who wasn't supposed to be there.
