SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has signed free agent forward John Scott to a one-year contract.
Scott, 31, ranked 13th in the NHL with 125 penalty minutes in 56 games during the 2013-14 campaign, leading the Buffalo Sabres in that category.
"John brings a physical, no-nonsense element to our lineup," said Wilson. "As we integrate more younger players to our team, John's presence alone can act as a deterrent and help keep teams and opposing players honest."
The six-foot-eight, 259-pound native of Edmonton, Alberta, has recorded two goals, four assists and 430 penalty minutes in 236 career NHL games with Minnesota, Chicago, the New York Rangers and Buffalo. Scott was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by Minnesota on Dec. 31, 2006.
