You thought you saw the best of Max Domi at the world juniors? Think again as he stuns fans and commentators alike with this jaw-dropping display of short-handed puck brilliance.
GLENDALE, ARIZONA – Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney announced today that the Coyotes have signed forward Max Domi to a three-year, entry-level contract. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"We are very pleased to sign Max to an entry-level contract," said Maloney. "Max is a very talented young player with a bright future. He had an impressive prospect development camp and we look forward to watching his progress."
from Bob McKenzie of TSN,
It probably isn’t the best week to be introducing you to Max Domi.
That’s because we are obliged to report that the 15-year-old son of retired NHL tough guy Tie Domi was suspended this week for eight games for his part in a line brawl in a Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) minor midget AAA game between his Don Mills Flyers and their arch rivals, the Toronto Marlies.
So right away, you’re going to start connecting the dots… son of Tie Domi… line brawl… 8-game suspension… a real chip off the old block, right?
The reason for getting to know Max is not because he’s a minor hockey enforcer cut from the same cloth as his dad but because he’s precisely the opposite—a talented, highly-skilled playmaking, goal-scoring centre who is, by most accounts, the top prospect available in this year’s Ontario Hockey League priority selection, aka the minor midget draft.
