Holy Domi

Canada and the world got to see what Londoners see regularly when Max Domi took the ice for Canada at the World Junior Championships. The Coyotes' prospect proved he has a nose for the net, doesn't mind getting his hands dirty, can skate like the wind, and loves to play the game. In other words, he's a pretty special player. With a World Junior gold medal in his pocket, he returned to the OHL's London Knights to continue their pursuit of the Memorial Cup. You knew there would be highlights still, but I don't think anyone anticipated what Domi did tonight. The Sarnia Sting certainly didn't.

I'll let the video do the talking because wow.

Full speed.
On a breakaway.
Flip it over the goalie.
Bat it out of the air.
Smiles all around.

This kid is gonna be a star. In fact, an NHL All-Star. Max Domi is the kind of player that the Coyotes will be able to build around for a long time. He's fast, he's exciting, he has great hands, and he's a scorer. 29 other NHL teams will be forced to defend against Domi. The only question is how often they'll be victimized!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
