Domingue shuns Coyotes, opts to play in Europe
Arizona Coyotes goaltender Louis Domingue elected against signing a one-year, two-way qualifying offer and has opted to play in Europe next season.
The Coyotes will retain Domingue's rights for the next four years.
"I think he's always been quite confident in himself, and he just thought he deserved more than a two-way contract basically is what it came down to and that's fine," Arizona general manager Don Maloney told AZCentral Sports. "He's still a young goalie. I don't know where he's going to play over there, but hopefully he'll play somewhere and then we'll see."
Domingue made 18 saves to lift the Coyotes to a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Feb. 1. The 23-year-old Quebec native finished his first NHL season with a 1-2-1 mark, 2.73 goals-against average and .911 save percentage in seven appearances.
