John Scott addressed the media after the Buffalo Sabres practiced for about an hour this morning at First Niagara Center.
His hit on Loui Eriksson in last night’s 5-2 loss to Boston, along with his value as an NHL player period, has been questioned by several national media outlets. Scott would like to say he’s not a goon.
“I don’t think I’m a dirty player,” Scott said. “I try to play within the code, within the rules. This is my first suspension. I don’t try to be a dirty player. I kind of feel really upset. I was sick to my stomach last night knowing what happened watching the video. I just kind of regret the whole situation. I don’t want to be a dirty player.”
