Max Domi of the London Knights scored one of the most creative breakaway goals imaginable on Friday. With a flick of the wrists, the 19-year-old winger flipped the puck into the air over a sprawling netminder and tapped it into the open net.
For those who didn’t know Max Domi, the World Junior Championship was somewhat of a coming out party. But if he wasn’t on your radar yet, he is now.
During Friday night’s game between Domi’s London Knights and the Sarnia Sting, the crafty forward pulled off one of the most incredible breakaway moves you’ll ever see. While it’s not a fancy deke or ridiculous shot, it’s one of the most creative efforts you’ll see all year.
Domi, the son of longtime Toronto Maple Leaf Tie and the 12th overall pick by the Arizona Coyotes in 2013, clearly got the hands of the family. It’s a goal that takes a few watches to really grasp, and it’s more incredible with every watch.
The goal, which came with the Knights shorthanded, was Domi’s 19th of the season and his 64th point. If he pulls anything like this off in the big leagues, we can’t wait to see it.
