  • Penguins' Louis Domingue: Waived Thursday

    Domingue was placed on waivers by the Penguins on Thursday in order to move him down to the minors, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.

    Domingue was always going to end up with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton after signing a two-way deal with Pittsburgh in the offseason. The 29-year-old netminder will serve as the emergency third option for the Pens behind Tristan Jarry and Casey DeSmith, making him a relative non-factor in fantasy contests.

  • Penguins' Louis Domingue: Signs deal with Pittsburgh

    Domingue signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Penguins on Thursday. It's worth $750,000 at the NHL level and $300,000 in the AHL.

    A backup netminder for most of his NHL career, Domingue will join his sixth team in the last five years. He only made a single appearance last season, but he wasn't great the year prior, putting up an ugly .882 save percentage and 3.79 GAA in 16 games with the Devils. The 29-year-old will provide a veteran third-string presence behind Tristan Jarry and Casey DeSmith in 2021-22.

  • Flames' Louis Domingue: Falls in Calgary debut

    Domingue allowed three goals on 23 shots in a 4-2 loss to Vancouver on Tuesday.

    Domingue was making his first NHL appearance since March 2020, which happened to come as a member of the Canucks. The 29-year-old allowed first-period tallies by Travis Hamonic and Nils Hoglander on Tuesday, plus a Tyler Myers goal in the final frame, and the Flames were unable to climb all the way back. Domingue hasn't won an NHL game since Jan. 2020 with New Jersey. He has a lifetime 3.05 GAA and .902 save percentage in 139 career appearances.

  • Flames' Louis Domingue: Making season debut

    Domingue will be promoted to Calgary's active roster and start between the pipes in Tuesday's road game against the Canucks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Domingue hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since 2019-20, when he went 3-9-2 while posting an ugly 3.81 GAA and .882 save percentage in 17 games split between the Devils and Vancouver. The 29-year-old backstop will attempt to secure his first win of the year in a road matchup with a Canucks club that's lost three of its last four games.

  • Flames' Louis Domingue: Back on taxi squad

    Domingue was promoted to the taxi squad Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Domingue earned some playing time during his stint with AHL Stockton, but he'll return to his No. 3 role with the big club now. The 29-year-old Domingue isn't expected to see NHL ice time unless Jacob Markstrom or David Rittich get hurt.

  • Flames' Louis Domingue: Drops to minors

    Domingue was reassigned to AHL Stockton on Wednesday/

    Domingue swapped places with Artyom Zagidulin, allowing the former to stay fresh with playing time in the minors. Domingue will likely be back with the taxi squad in a week or so.

  • Flames' Louis Domingue: Rises to taxi squad

    Domingue was recalled from AHL Stockton to the taxi squad Thursday.

    Artyom Zagidulin was assigned to AHL Stockton in a corresponding move. Domingue -- who has a .904 save percentage over 139 career NHL games -- will serve as the No. 3 goalie behind Jacob Markstrom and David Rittich for the time being.

  • Flames' Louis Domingue: Shuttled to minors

    Domingue was reassigned to AHL Stockton on Saturday, per CapFriendly.

    Domingue's stay in the minors is likely temporary, as the veteran netminder is Calgary's No. 3 option at the NHL level this year. Expect Domingue and Artyom Zagidulin to switch places again soon.

  • Flames' Louis Domingue: Reassigned to taxi squad

    Calgary reassigned Domingue to its taxi squad Friday.

    David Rittich has rejoined the team after missing Thursday's season opener against Winnipeg for personal reasons, so the Flames are no longer in need of Domingue's services as a backup netminder. The 28-year-old backstop will, however, continue to be the first option Calgary turns to if and when Rittich or Jacob Markstrom is forced to miss time.

  • Flames' Louis Domingue: Activated from taxi squad

    Domingue was activated to the 23-man roster by the Flames on Thursday.

    Domingue was placed on waivers by the team Sunday, but he ended up residing on the team's taxi squad. With David Rittich tending to a personal matter for Thursday's game, Domingue is expected to handle back up duties behind Jacob Markstrom. Once Rittich returns to the team, expect Domingue to revert back to the taxi squad.

  • Flames' Louis Domingue: On waivers Sunday

    Domingue was placed on waivers Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Domingue figures to be the Flames' No. 3 goalie in 2020-21, so he needs to pass through waivers to be eligible for the taxi squad. The 28-year-old netminder is unlikely to see much time at the NHL level, as Jacob Markstrom and David Rittich will likely share goaltending duties this year. The Flames will also want to keep AHL Stockton's goalie job clear for the 25-year-old Artyom Zagidulin, who figures to be the primary starter in the minors this year.

  • Flames' Louis Domingue: Pens one-year deal

    Domingue secured a one-year, two-way deal with Calgary on Saturday.

    Domingue will follow former Cancuks' netminder Jacob Markstrom in moving to Calgary but on a two-way contract instead of the six-year, $36 million Markstrom signed. While Domingue figures to serve as the No. 3 option behind David Rittich, he could challenge for the backup role during training camp.

  • Canucks' Louis Domingue: Suiting up as backup Tuesday

    Domingue is in the lineup and will back up Thatcher Demko in Game 5 against Vegas on Tuesday, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.

    Domingue's lone appearance with Vancouver was back on March 1 after coming over via trade from New Jersey in February -- he allowed four goals on 34 shots against Columbus. His pressing into backup duty Tuesday is necessitated by the groin injury to incumbent No. 1 Jacob Markstrom. Domingue only has 18 minutes of career playoff experience under his belt despite having played in 139 NHL contests, so the only way we'd likely see him face pucks is in a blowout scenario or injury to Demko.

  • Canucks' Louis Domingue: Late goals sink Canucks

    Domingue allowed four goals on 34 shots during Sunday's 5-3 loss to Columbus.

    The game appeared destined for overtime before Emil Bemstrom's ninth of the campaign gave Columbus a 4-3 lead with under two minutes remaining in the third period. Gustav Nyquist would add an empty-net goal. Domingue was making his first start for his new club, and he'll continue seeing a moderate workload behind Thatcher Demko until Jacob Markstrom (lower body) is ready to return.

  • Canucks' Louis Domingue: Set for Canucks debut

    Domingue will make the road start Sunday against the Blue Jackets, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    The Canucks brought Domingue in from the Devils at the trade deadline because of concerns about Jacob Markstrom's lower-body injury. Domingue will make his Canucks debut Sunday when the team plays for a second straight night. The 27-year-old netminder struggled with the Devils this year with an .882 save percentage, but perhaps the change of scenery can help his cause. It's a favorable matchup, too, as the Blue Jackets have lost 10 of the last 11 contests.

  • Canucks' Louis Domingue: Heads to contender

    The Canucks acquired Domingue from the Devils for goalie Zane McIntyre on Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

    The Canucks are concerned about Jacob Markstrom's knee injury, so bringing Domingue aboard adds some insurance in the crease. Domingue was stuck in a rut behind a putrid Devils team, but he still showed flashes of solid play, including a loss to the Blues last week when he turned aside 36 of 39 shots. If Markstrom's forced to miss time, Domingue will likely line up as the No. 2 behind rookie Thatcher Demko.

  • Devils' Louis Domingue: Ticketed for minors

    The Devils sent Domingue to AHL Binghamton on Friday after he cleared waivers.

    Domingue was held out for precautionary reasons Thursday and remains a candidate to be dealt prior to Monday's trade deadline. For now, he will head to Binghamton and await word on his fate.

  • Devils' Louis Domingue: Placed on waivers

    The Devils placed Domingue (not injury related) on waivers Thursday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    All signs point to Domingue being moved prior to Monday's trade deadline. The 27-year-old backstop is being held out of Thursday's game against San Jose for "precautionary reasons," which means New Jersey doesn't want to risk him damaging his value by suffering an injury in a meaningless match. Domingue will sit as a healthy scratch until the Devils are able to find a suitable trade partner.

  • Devils' Louis Domingue: Held out for precautionary reasons

    Domingue won't be in the lineup versus San Jose on Thursday for precautionary reasons, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    The Devils recalled Cory Schneider from AHL Binghamton to serve as the backup to MacKenzie Blackwood, further increasing the speculation that Domingue is going to be shipped out prior to Monday's trade deadline. Where the netminder lands remains to be seen, but there are certainly contenders that could use a solid veteran backup down the stretch, including Colorado and Edmonton.
