Coyotes send top pick Max Domi to OHL

The Phoenix Coyotes are sending 2013 first-round pick Max Domi back to his junior team, Domi said Saturday on Twitter.

Domi, the 12th pick in the draft June 30 at Prudential Center, appeared in four preseason games. He had no goals and an assist. The son of longtime NHL player Tie Domi, Max Domi had 39 goals and 87 points in 64 regular-season games for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League last season before adding 11 goals and 32 points in 21 postseason contests.

"Had an amazing experience in Phoenix!" Domi tweeted. "Learned a lot and can't thank everyone enough! So pumped to get back at it with the boys in London!"

London will be the host of the 2014 Memorial Cup, so the Knights will have an automatic berth. Domi will also be a favorite to represent Canada in the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championships.

Quote of the Day

That's the biggest goal I've ever scored. It's a great feeling any time you do that, especially at home. We're one game away from a Stanley Cup berth. It was a huge goal and it felt unbelievable.
