Max Domi’s Upside

Coyotes excited about Max Domi’s potential

“I think Max has a tremendous upside as an offensive player and has shown an ability to dominate at the junior level, but maybe there’s some prejudice because of his size,” Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said. “I think it’s just maturity to be honest; there are times when he tries too hard. Whether or not he’ll star in the League this November or two Novembers from now, I can’t tell you.”

If Domi, who has starred the past three seasons with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, does make the cut out of training camp, will he be able to handle the rigors of an 82-game regular season in the tough Pacific Division?

“Max is a highly skilled player with very good upside but right now his game is too one dimensional for some,” Scout B, who works for an Eastern Conference team, told “He needs to use his linemates more effectively in order to have success at the pro level. There is some concern with how his game will translate at the NHL level. Scouts know he is a very gifted offensive player, but may need to prove his worth on the other side of the puck.”
