Louis Domingue Is Keeping The Arizona Coyotes In The Playoff Hunt

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

When Smith went down, general manager Don Maloney publicly stated he would look around for goaltending help.

Instead, the 23-year-old Domingue ran with it once Anders Lindback faltered, allowing Maloney to sit tight on those trade calls.

Domingue is 6-0-2 in eight starts since being called up, with a 1.73 goals-against average and .947 save percentage.

"Keeping it very simple, not overthinking it, just staying within myself," said Domingue. "We're in such a nice run right now as a team that it really helps me do my job."

Drafted 138th overall in the first round in 2010, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound Domingue was projected this season to be the No. 1 guy in AHL Springfield and hopefully work his way towards an NHL job next season.

Instead, Domingue has grabbed onto his unexpected NHL opportunity now.
