From the flash of neon orange on the shaft of his stick to the cachet buried in the four letters on the back of his jersey Coyotes forward Max Domi elicits attention wherever he goes.
And that isn’t about to change any time soon.
This is the first time under coach Dave Tippett’s regime that a first-round pick has been considered for the NHL roster in his draft year. That evaluation won’t be completed until the 18-year-old lines up next to the veterans in training camp but the buzz is a refreshing change for a team that doesn’t usually mull over offensive upstarts.
“Obviously everyone wants to make the team right away” Domi said. “I’m pretty much prepared to say I’ll do whatever it takes to make the team.”
Assessing Domi against NHL standards this early came at the expense of a playoff season. Twelfth where the Coyotes grabbed him is the highest they’ve drafted since they took defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson sixth overall in 2009.
“That’s part of it but Max is a dynamic player”

Mikkel Boedker has finally re-signed after a lot of speculation that he wanted a long term deal after having taken a two year deal that held a cap hit of 1.1mil per season as his bridge deal. His new deal is also a two year deal though his cap hit now is a modest 2.55mil per season. I honestly expected him to get a larger deal after seeing all the various insane contracts both in...
