Coyotes return Domi to junior team

The Arizona Coyotes on Thursday returned top forward prospect Max Domi to his junior team, the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League.

Domi, 19, had 34 goals and 93 points in 61 games last season with London and also played in the Memorial Cup for the third straight season. The 12th player taken in the 2013 NHL Draft, Domi also is No. 25 on's ranking of the Top 60 prospects in the League.

"I thought he had a terrific camp, much better than a year ago," general manager Don Maloney said, according to the Coyotes website. "He’s quicker, stronger -- he’s just 19 years old. He’s a young player that has to continue to be able to execute offensively at the NHL level on a consistent basis. When we talk Max Domi, we’re not talking about a fourth-line energy player. We need him to be a top-two line offensive contributor and he’s going to be a great player for us down the road… In an ideal world we’d love to put him in the American [Hockey] League, but that’s not available to us. He’ll go back to junior."

Bruins hope Pastrnak can play this weekend

David Pastrnak, the Boston Bruins' first-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, skated a regular shift at practice Thursday, and coach Claude Julien said he's hoping Pastrnak will be able to play in a preseason game this weekend.

"That's the hope," Julien said, according to the Bruins website, when asked if Pastrnak might get into the game Friday against the New York Islanders or Saturday against the Detroit Red Wings. "I think right now, he's feeling good. He looks like he's ready, and the only thing that's stopping us from saying yes right now is we just need the doctors to clear him.

"[I'm] feeling confident that he will be [cleared], from what David's telling me himself -- he feels good, so we'll wait and see, and probably be able to confirm that for you [Friday] morning."
