"We are very pleased to sign Max to an entry-level contract," said General Manager Don Maloney in the team's press release. "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."
Both Maloney and Head Coach Dave Tippett have mentioned that the 18-year-old will have a serious opportunity to compete for a roster spot at training camp.
Domi played with the OHL's London Knights last season, scoring 39 goals and 87 points in 64 regular season games. He continued his hot play in the playoffs recording 32 points, including 11 goals, in 21 playoff games.
The son of former NHLer Tie Domi, plays a dramatically different style. While both are known for their mitts, Max's are used for play-making.
