Max Domi played this past season in the Ontario Hockey League for the London Knights. Max is the son of former NHLer and Winnipeg Jet 1.0 fan favorite Tie Domi but they are 2 completely different players.
Max Domi is a highly skilled forward with the potential to be one of the top forwards in this draft. He has a very good shot, he is a great puck handler with excellent on-ice vision and creativity in setting up his team-mates. At 5’10 his size will always be in question, but that shouldn’t concern any potential team drafting him as he plays much bigger than his size. Most scouts consider Max Domi to be a solid top 15 prospect but it wouldn’t be a surprise if he gets drafted in the top 10. His skill and high hockey IQ might be too much to pass up for a team with a top 10 draft pick.
Domi is an excellent skater who uses his shiftiness and mobility to beat defenders. He has a very good first step with top end acceleration better than average speed. Domi’s over-all skating ability makes him a very dangerous player on the rush. Max Domi may be only listed at 5’10 but his strength and low center of gravity makes him very difficult to knock off the puck and he wins more than his fair share puck battles along the boards and in front of the net.
Domi has worked hard on his defensive game and has become a lot more effective defensively. He back-checks hard, works hard in the defensive zone and competes pretty well against much bigger players.
Max Domi looks like a top 6 forward and maybe even a first line center or winger. He really elevated his play during the play-offs and started to garner a lot of attention as a top 10 pick. I don’t know where Max Domi is going to be drafted but I will gaurantee you he won’t make it past #13 !!! I see Domi going in the 10-13 range.
