There's nothing like starting off a list of top prospects with a huge surprise, and that's what we see in Max Domi. While others, including BR's Steele, have Domi penciled in to go to Columbus with the 14th pick and no higher, I think Domi could be a surprise sleeper that could be one of the first 10 draftees.
Max's father, Tie, was a legendary scrapper, having earned over 3,500 penalty minutes in 15 NHL seasons.
Max, on the other hand, is more of a finesse guy than a fight guy. While he would fit in well with the Blue Jackets, there is an admitted knock on his size (5'9", 195 lbs).
Still, with 39 goals and 48 assists (87 points) during the regular season and another 32 points in the playoffs (11 goals, 21 assists) for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, Domi is an offensive threat despite his size because of his blazing speed on-ice and overall agility.
Ideal Landing Spots: If he's still available, look for Domi to indeed go to Columbus on the 14th pick. But don't be surprised if goes to Dallas with the 10th pick, and maybe even as high as seventh to Edmonton (if Sean Monahan is not available when it's the Oilers' turn to pick).
Domi has a lot of the same scrappiness that new Oilers coach Dallas Easkins had as a player. Edmonton needs a player that can both shoot and pass the puck with equal aplomb, and even though he may have a slight size disadvantage, Domi's natural talent should make up for that. But if he doesn't go to Edmonton, Domi could very well fit into the Stars' plans. Center/right wing Hunter Shinkaruk is pegged to be Dallas' choice, but Domi could vault over him on draft day.
