At the 8:18 mark of the second period during a scrum around the Anaheim net on Monday, Scott nailed the Ducks’ Tim Jackman flush in the side of the jaw with what looked to be either his fist or the butt end of his stick. Jackman immediately toppled over, and appeared to be out cold for a few moments before he eventually got to his skates and left the game.\

Following the game, Sharks coach Todd McLellan was asked about the incident.
“I didn’t see what happened on the ice, I just saw Tim laying there and went and looked at [video] after. I think they came together at the net, and instinct – John put his hands up, and he ran into it. I didn’t think it was an issue at all,” McLellan said.
