The sophomore sensation has managed to put up 11 points this season despite a 3.4% shooting percentage.
He’s contributed by performing as a facilitator instead of a finisher.
Even with the lack of goals scored, Domi is on pace for more than 60 points this season. And it’s a pretty safe assumption that his shooting percentage is going to move upwards at least a little bit which should help his quest for that goal.
Those players spent most of their careers flirting with 20 goals or so per season and put up healthy assist totals to hang in the 60 point range. If that’s the outlook in the future for Max Domi, that’s a ceiling I’m sure the Arizona Coyotes can live with.
There’s no saying that he can’t find his goal-scoring touch as he grows, as well.
Domi reaching the 60-point plateau on such an anemic offensive team would be quite the milestone. The last time Arizona had a 60+ point scorer was in 2011-12 when Radim Vrbata (62) and Ray Whitney (77) both surpassed that mark.
It’s hard to gauge just how bad Arizona might be without him.
Add in Radim Vrbata and Oliver Ekman-Larsson, and without those three the Coyotes wouldn’t even have an offensive attack to speak of.
