John Scott caps unbelievable week as wife gives birth to twins

BY foxsports • February 5, 2016

Journeyman hockey player John Scott has experienced a lifetime of joy all in one week.

After being named the Most Valuable Player of the All-Star Game on Sunday, Scott was selected as the NHL's First Star of the Week the following day. On Friday, his wife, Danielle, gave birth to twin girls.

Scott's wife posted a picture of newborns Estelle Vera and Sofia Leland on her Instagram account.

The 6-foot-8 behemoth also has his enforcer work cut out for him in a home of now-five females. 

Scott was acquired by the Montreal Canadiens from the Arizona Coyotes last month and promptly sent to St. John's of the American Hockey League. 

The 33-year-old was given time off to spend with his expanding family in Michigan before he'll be summoned back to Newfoundland to play in the AHL.
