John Scott, you’re going in.
The towering San Jose Sharks forward, who has two goals and three points in 24 games this season, will play against the L.A. Kings at Levi’s Stadium in Saturday’s NHL Stadium Series game, according to multiple reports.
As a result, Chris Tierney will come out of the lineup, as per CSN Bay Area.
Sharks head coach Todd McLellan has opted for size in such a big game, before what will be a huge crowd. Scott last played Feb. 11 against the Washington Capitals.
“John Scott had a big factor in the game we played against L.A. last time,” said McLellan, as per NHL.com.
“He played really good minutes, hard minutes. They’re a big team, and John is that. That’s called ingredients. You need different types of ingredients on any given night to win. The last time we used those ingredients we had some success.”
