Meet A Maverick: #40 John Scott-Dickson

February 22, 2014

John Scott-Dickson


By Fred Liggett


A familiar face to many Missouri Mavericks fans is John Scott-Dickson now in his 3rd year as a Maverick and provides steady veteran leadership to the team.

Dicksey as he is called by teammates is also in his 3rd year in the CHL and 6th year playing pro hockey. Prior to coming to Missouri for the 2011-12 season Dickson played in Idaho and for Gwinnett both in the East Coast Hockey League.

Johnís favorite player growing up was Jeremy Roenick so itís no surprise to hear his favorite team is the Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL. A native of North York Ontario, Dickson still has his mom, dad and three younger sisters rooting him on from home. While in college at the University of New Brunswick John enjoyed winning a couple of National championships. Those experiences are Dicksonís favorite hockey memory so far.

His remaining career goal is to win another championship this time a CHL title while playing for the Mavericks. After his career is over John hopes to go into coaching.

The right-handed forward first put on a pair of skates at the age of 3. His first position playing hockey was a goalie, but Dickson quickly admits that lasted all of one game. If not in pro hockey today John would be a firefighter in his hometown.

On those long road trips in the CHL Dickson likes to listen to music and mess around with his teammates.

The 29 year old admits to being a big movie fan and counts Good will hunting and Sandlot among his favorites. John likes to cook and when he does itís usually Jambalaya, some stews and soups in his crock pot.

Following his playing days Dickson hopes to be remembered as a team first player. This community minded Maverick who appeared at the Downtown Days sports booth last summer here in Leeís Summit also enjoys visiting BBQ restaurants and attending Kansas City Chiefs football games.

John quietly admits to being a Toronto Blue Jays baseball fan and tries to catch them when they are in Kansas City to play the Royals.

Mavericks fans next chance to see this veteran in action will be on Saturday, March 1 when the team returns home after a 5 game road trip.

The First Place Missouri Mavericks host their rival Wichita Thunder on March 1 with the fun starting at 7:05 p.m. when the puck drops inside the Independence Events Center.
