With the recent acquisition of D Johnny Oduya, the Blackhawks had some latitude to work with on their defensive side. Scott had played 29 for the 'Hawks in the 2011-12 season, but mostly spent time in a reserve role, averaging only around 7:00 on ice per game.
Here is a look at John Scott's 2011-12 stats:
