SASKATOON, Sask. — The next person to say Max Domi does not play like his father, celebrated former NHL tough guy Tie Domi, will get two minutes for being trite.
The younger Domi is a point-producing playmaker who is listed at a modest 5-foot-10, but he can't be easily classified as a finesse player. That came across loud and clear in the third period on Friday at the MasterCard Memorial Cup, when Domi lined up Saskatoon Blades forward Shane McColgan and dropped him with a solid shoulder-to-sternum bodycheck.
"There was no real momentum for either team at that point in the game," Domi said following the Knights' 3-2 victory over the Blades. "Whatever it takes, a hit, a scoring chance, a big save. I was in the right place at the right time and was able to get the boys going."Read More »from Memorial Cup 2013: London Knights’ Max Domi flattens Saskatoon Blades’ Shane McColgan with big bodycheck (VIDEO)
