RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Known for dropping the gloves, Scott signed a one-year deal as a free agent on July 1, and joins a Sabres blue line that was desperate for depth following an injury-riddled season. He isn't likely to play a regular shift with the Sabres, and may end up on waivers at some point if the club attempts to send him to AHL Rochester. He doesn't bring anything to the table offensively, but is worth a spot start in extremely deep goon leagues.
The Blackhawks lured in Scott with a one-year deal in the offseason. He'll be counted on to agitate the opposition and maybe do a bit of enforcing, but the buck stops there.
Scott didn't have much of a place in the Wild's previous regime, but figures to play a more prominent role this season. He had 21 PIMs in 20 games last season, but also had just one point. He offers little offensively and his fantasy value is tied with how much time he spends in the sin bin.
At 6'8" and 225 lbs., Scott's has the size to be a big-time enforcer at the NHL level. He's already accomplished that in the AHL by racking up 184 PIM last season. If and when he makes it up to the big club, he will undoubtedly be used in the same capacity, and will be a serious source of penalty minutes.
