Breaking News: Former All-Star John Scott Comes Out as a Fraud

The Corey Perry situation has been one shrouded in mystery as of late, but on a recent podcast, former NHL All-Star John Scott seemingly revealed the reason why Perry was ultimately terminated.

A false statement from the former All-Star

On a podcast appearance, this is what Scott had to say about the situation involving Perry;

Confirmed by current NBC Sports Chicago broadcaster John Scott that Corey Perry «made a mistake in Columbus one night, drank too much and made a pass at a staff member who worked at NBC». If that's all Perry did then it's not a big deal and nobody should be concerned


Now however, Scott has come out on social media to reveal himself as a fraud and officially walk back the statement.

On my podcast this week I made a false and misleading statement regarding former Blackhawk Corey Perry. It was an off-the-cuff remark that is completely unfounded and not true. It was a poor choice of words and I'll try to be more careful in the future.

At this point it's clear that Scott has no better inside information than anyone, and is a good lesson for everyone to not believe everything said on a podcast. It's highly unlikely that anyone in Chicago is going to reveal what happened with Perry, but now he's in Edmonton and it appears everyone is happily moving along with their lives and their careers.
