Hey everybody, John Scott scored again

Sharks enforcer John Scott scored the third goal of his NHL career in October – and Wednesday in Calgary, he matched his entire NHL career output and set a new career high with his second of the campaign. It's not a beautiful goal, but when you're Scott, you take them any way you can.

San Jose Sharks enforcer John Scott scored a goal in October of this season and the hockey world erupted. Why? Well, mainly because the massive tough guy had scored just two goals in his entire NHL career (total games through 2013-14: 236) before the current campaign began. However, after Wednesday's contest against Calgary, he's matched that total and set a new career high with his second of the year.

The Sharks were trailing the Flames 3-0 in Calgary when Scott was the beneficiary of a most fortuitous bounce to the right of Flames goalie Jonas Hiller:

The Sharks wound up losing 3-1 to the Flames, but with two goals and three points in 23 games, Scott is now on pace to finish the year with five goals and seven points in 53 games. And by "on pace to", I mean "absolutely will not": the 32-year-old has never scored more than three goals in a single season, dating back to his days at Michigan Tech.
