Fathers Of Fighters

from Adam L. Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times,

The Blackhawks are getting some quality father-son time on their road trip to Florida. The team invited the players’ fathers along for a first-class trip, including a golf outing and a big dinner on the Atlantic coast.

The Sun-Times chatted with some of the fathers of the more feisty Hawks:

Howard Scott, who isn’t anywhere near 6-8, on his son John: “I’m 6-1. My wife is about 5-10. He’s the biggest one in our family by far.

“John went through the ­college ranks and fighting is taboo down there, but he always managed to get it in. I’ve never seen him lose a fight yet.

“I was actually at that game [when he fought the Kings’ Kevin Westgarth]. I had seats right by where the fight happened. What goes through my mind is my heart is going a mile a minute, hoping that he doesn’t get hurt and not hurt the other guy too much. My wife, however, cannot stand it one bit. She actually has to leave when the fight happens.”

Bill Bickell, on his toothless son Bryan
