2021 Fantasy Outlook
Domi is already on his third NHL organization at age 26 and it could have been four had the Kraken not passed on him in the expansion draft. Like most of his teammates, Domi was lousy in his first year with the Jackets in 2020-21. He managed just nine goals and 24 points in 54 games, while "adding" a minus-18 rating for good measure. Domi is usually about average in terms of generating shots on goal and offers nothing in terms of hits and blocks, so he has to put up points in order to be an effective fantasy weapon. Domi underwent shoulder surgery this past June which is expected to keep him out until early December, at a minimum. There simply isn't much upside here when taking the injury into account.

Carries Canes to win

May 14, 2022
Domi had two goals and an assist in a series-clinching 3-2 Game 7 win over Boston in their Eastern Conference First Round series Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Domi's first goal put the Canes up 2-0 early in the second period and stood as the winner. He grabbed a loose puck at the left post and tucked it into the net for his first Stanley Cup playoff goal. Domi's second was a one-timer from the right hash marks at 10:33 of the second period. He had failed to deliver consistent offense in Raleigh after his arrival at the trade deadline, but all that is forgotten with a massive lift to carry the Canes to a Game 7 win.

Domi's production fell off a cliff in his second season with the Canadiens last year, as he only totaled 17 goals and 27 helpers in 71 games one campaign after racking up 28 goals and 44 apples in 82 contests. The 25-year-old reportedly frequently butted heads with coach Claude Julien, which led to him being shipped to the Blue Jackets in exchange for Josh Anderson in October. Domi is set to center Columbus' second line and second power-play unit in 2020-21, so he'll have major bounce-back potential assuming he's able to gel with his new coach John Tortorella. A 20-plus goal, 55-plus point and 200-plus shot pace is definitely a possibility for Domi this season, but he'll also come with some risk, as those totals are based on the assumption that he'll return to form with the Jackets, so virtual managers should be sure to not overspend on draft day.
After scoring nine goals in each of his last two seasons with the Coyotes, Domi was sent to Montreal for Alex Galchenyuk ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, a trade that initially seemed to benefit Arizona. After all, the Coyotes were getting the more gifted offensive talent, but Domi ended up being the far more productive player last season. He overshot expectations by a wide margin, posting career highs in goals (28) and assists (44), ending the season with 31 more points than Galchenyuk. That increase in offensive production can largely be attributed to Domi shooting the puck more than ever before while displaying a willingness to camp out in front of the net. The Winnipeg native fired a career-high 203 shots on goal, cashing in at a 13.8% conversion rate. The 24-year-old also saw an increase in his high-danger chances, setting another career high with a whopping 61 in 82 games. The challenge for coach Claude Julien in 2019-20 will be to find complementary linemates. Andrew Shaw was traded to Chicago in the offseason, leaving Domi without the linemate that had the greatest positive impact on his performance last year. The 2013 first-round pick should continue to succeed in Montreal this season, but he'll be hard pressed to top the career-best benchmarks he established last campaign.
The Canadiens parted ways with the enigmatic Alex Galchenyuk to acquire Domi from the Coyotes during the offseason in what is a classic change-of-scenery deal for both clubs. It may turn out to be another trade Montreal comes to regret: first it was P.K. Subban for Shea Weber; then Mikhail Sergachev for Jonathan Drouin; and now Domi for Galchenyuk. Arizona gets the player with more hockey talent while Montreal loses a goal-scorer it sorely needs. The Habs' front office simply ran out of patience. Domi isn't the goal scorer that Galchenyuk is -- he scored nine last year, four of them came on empty nets. He does, however, bring more energy to the ice, establishing himself as a high-assist player in Arizona. Domi figures to slot in as a top-six forward and has also played center, a position of weakness for Montreal. At this point it's most likely Domi winds up playing left wing but one never knows with Bergevin and Julien calling the shots.
A midseason injury limited Domi to just 59 games last year, and he failed to improve on his solid rookie numbers. In fact, the sophomore dipped to just nine goals while registering an 8.3 shooting percentage (7.4 at five-on-five). Domi's 29 assists enabled him to post 0.64 points per game for the second consecutive year, and his 2.3 points per 60 minutes lead all Coyotes over the past two seasons. So, while 2016-17 was more of the same from the 22-year-old forward, Domi's future remains bright and his fantasy upside high. The Coyotes were aggressive during the offseason, and a number of veteran additions will accompany an influx of promising youngsters to bolster the roster. Being surrounded with more offensive talent should help propel Domi to career-best scoring numbers.
Domi came into his rookie season with a lot of hype, and he largely delivered on it, earning the second-highest point total on his team behind star blueliner Oliver-Ekman Larsson. The 21-year-old came to the big leagues after dominating the OHL and quickly carved out a key role on the Coyotes. With one year under his belt, the 12th overall pick from 2013 is poised to improve upon his totals of 18 goals, 34 assists, 72 PIM and a plus-3 rating. The future is bright for last year's third-highest-scoring rookie, and as the son of former NHL enforcer Tie Domi, hockey is clearly in his blood. Domi showed strong chemistry with fellow youngster Anthony Duclair last year, and they should partner again this season. With Domi's pedigree and high-end offensive skill in combination with the development of Arizona's young players, he could just be getting started.
Domi had yet another dominating junior season after the Coyotes returned him to OHL London, posting 102 points and a plus-24 rating over 57 games. He was named the top forward at the World Junior Championship, where he combined with fellow Coyotes prospect Anthony Duclair on a dynamic line. While Domi is built like his dad (former NHL enforcer Tie Domi) at 5-foot-9 and 198 pounds, he offers far more offensive skill, which is apparent in both his point totals and highlight reel. He is expected to crack the Coyotes roster out of training camp this year and could immediately challenge for a top-six role while seeing time on the power play. While he likely won't have as much of an impact as a rookie compared to Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel, Domi appears to be ready to make the jump to the NHL and should quickly prove to be one of the top under-25 franchise centers in the league.
Domi had an outstanding showing with the OHL’s London Knights last season, scoring 90 points and supplying 90 PIM and a plus-24 mark in 61 games. With the departures of some veteran forwards from the Coyotes' roster, Domi has a good shot to make the team and find himself among the club's top-nine forwards. He’ll still need to have a strong camp in order to make the cut, but the truth is the Coyotes need a player of his skill in their lineup, even if it comes with some growing pains. Domi could be a sleeper candidate for the Calder Trophy if he takes advantage of the opportunity.
Domi is an intriguing prospect, as Yotes' general manager Don Maloney has already named the 18-year-old as a player who could make an impact with the Coyotes this season. It will be interesting to watch training camp unfold to see how the hydrant-sized center performs. There are plenty of reasons to wonder if the smallish (5-9, 195 lb) 2013 first-round pick can keep up with the wear-and-tear of an 82-game schedule, but there's no doubt he's likely talented enough to crack the roster of a team that's hurting for an offensive spark. And he could deliver 25 to 30 points in his first campaign.
