Domi recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Red Wings.
Domi sprung Boone Jenner on a breakaway early in the second period to open the scoring. The helper was Domi's first point in four games with the Blue Jackets, as he hasn't done particularly well in adjusting to his new environment. Domi also has a minus-5 rating and only four shots on goal this season. Fantasy managers may be getting ready to cut bait after such a slow start, but a little patience could be helpful. The 25-year-old had 72 points in 82 games with the Canadiens in 2018-19 before dipping to 44 points in 71 outings last year.
Domi says he intends to shoot more this season, Brian Hedger of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
The 25-year-old averaged about 2.5 shots a game over his two seasons with Montreal, resulting in 45 goals in 153 games, but he's been working to become more aggressive in firing away. "Sometimes in the past, I've been known to maybe pass a little too much, and this year I'm really going to focus on getting the puck on net and making that simple play of just shooting the puck," Domi said this week. "It doesn't necessarily have to go in the first time, but the second and third time is how you score goals now in the NHL, especially on the power play." Skating on a line with Cam Atkinson gives Domi an outlet for his pass-first instincts, but more shots of his own could allow him to return to the 25-goal plateau this season.
Domi signed a two-year, $10.6 million contract with Columbus on Wednesday.
Domi -- who was acquired by the Jackets via trade Wednesday -- should slot into a second-line center role behind Pierre-Luc Dubois, though he could occasionally move to the wing to get both players on one line. In 71 games with the Habs last year, the 24-year-old Domi garnered 17 goals and 27 helpers and figures to get back over the 20-goal mark in 2020-21.
Domi was brought in by the Blue Jackets from the Canadiens on Tuesday, along with a 2020 third-round pick, in exchange for Josh Anderson.
Domi will need a new contract, as he is slated to become a restricted free agent Friday. The 24-year-old center has reached the 40-point mark in four of his five seasons, including the 72-point campaign he put together in 2018-19. With the Jackets, Domi should slot into a second-line role behind Pierre-Luc Dubois, though he could be utilized on the wing from time to time.
Domi picked up three assists, two of them on the power play, in Friday's 5-0 win over the Flyers during Game 2 of their first-round series.
The 25-year-old forward failed to find the scoresheet in any of the Habs' first five playoff games, but Domi broke out in a big way as the team evened up the series. He's coming off a disappointing regular season in which he scored only 17 goals and 44 points in 71 games, but Domi can erase that if he gets hot now and helps push Montreal towards another upset.
Domi (undisclosed) took the ice for Monday's training camp session, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Domi had been weighing his options whether to participate in the postseason and, it appears he has decided to play. The center should slot into a second-line role with Jonathan Drouin and Joel Armia, though the team could shuffle the deck prior to its play-in series clash with Pittsburgh.
Domi will wait another 7-10 days before deciding whether to join the Habs for Phase 3 training camp.
It was certainly a down year for Domi, as he managed just 44 points in 71 games this season compared to 72 points the year before. If he doesn't suit up for the playoffs, Nick Suzuki or Jesperi Kotkaniemi will likely be tasked with filling the second-line center role.
Domi has 17 goals, 27 assists and is minus-3 while averaging 17:06 of ice time per game over 71 games.
Domi fell back after a career year in 2018-19 and had a miserable midseason stretch, as he posted three points in 16 games between Jan. 9 and Feb. 14. Just when it looked like the Canadiens would let him walk as a restricted free agent following the season, Paul Byron returned from injury and ignited a scoring binge from Domi, who had eight points in a seven-game stretch. Before the coronavirus pandemic halted the season, he was in position to hit 50 points, which is acceptable production, but the 72 points he had the previous year may be an outlier.
Domi scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Hurricanes.
Domi had been hibernating for much of the new year but has awoken from a six-week slumber. The third-line center scored a goal for the second consecutive game and is riding a five-game point streak, which features four goals and three assists. The surge puts him at 44 points through 67 games, well off last season's pace but maybe enough for the Canadiens to re-sign him after the season.
Domi scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.
Domi put the Canadiens on the board first when his pass meant for Tomas Tatar at the side of the net caromed off Rangers defenseman Adam Fox and past goalie Alexander Georgiev. It was the third goal in the last three games for Domi, who has points in four straight and five of the last six. His point surge coincides with the return of Paul Byron, who joined Domi on the third line following his return from a knee injury.
Domi registered two assists during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Vancouver.
Domi has two points in each of his previous two contests and now has 42 total in 65 games this season. The Canadiens' forward has been up and down all year long but is in a nice groove at the moment, picking up points in four of his last five contests.
Domi scored twice Saturday in a 3-0 victory over the Senators.
The goals snapped a nine-game snipe drought. Domi now has 15 goals and 40 points in 64 games. 2020 hasn't been kind to him -- he has just 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in his last 24 games. That's a far cry from Domi's 30 points in his first 40 games, but maybe his four points in his last four games are the start of something strong again.
Domi had an assist, two shots, two hits and one blocked shot in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to Dallas.
Domi landed on the scoresheet for the first time in six games, but he has scored just one goal over the last 17 contests. He's in the final year of a two-year deal, and it's a real possibility Domi lands in a new home during the lead-up to the trade deadline Feb. 24. A new team could lead to a shakeup that benefits Domi, who has 37 points in 61 games after posting 28-44-72 in 82 games last season.
Domi had one shot and was minus-2 in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.
Domi is part of a Montreal offense that has steadily dropped off after a productive start to the season. The Canadiens are averaging just 2.5 goals per game since the All-Star break (23rd in NHL), and Domi is one of the players that needs to produce more. He has just three points over the last 16 games, which is part of the reason that he, and not rookie Nick Suzuki, was dropped from the second to third line.
Domi scored a goal on four shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Domi hadn't scored since Dec. 31, going 13 straight games without finding twine immediately after a six-game scoring streak. During his slump, he had four helpers. The 24-year-old is up to 35 points, 141 shots and a plus-3 rating in 54 contests. It's unlikely he'll match last year's breakout effort of 72 points in 82 outings.
Domi (illness) is expected to suit up versus Buffalo on Thursday after telling reporters, "I'm ready to play," Jean-Francois Chaumont of Le Journal de Montreal reports.
While the team officially designated Domi as a game-time decision, it appears the natural center is good to go. The Winnipeg native figures to slot into a second-line role alongside Nick Suzuki and Ilya Kovalchuk, which makes him a solid top-end fantasy option.
Domi (illness) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's matchup with Buffalo, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.
Prior to picking up the flu bug, Domi was struggling to produce, as he is goalless in his last 11 outings and has just one point in his previous seven contests. If the Winnipeg native is unable to play, Ryan Poehling could find himself bumped up to a top-six role, though that will also depend on the heath of Artturi Lehkonen (illness).
Domi (illness) isn't on the ice for Tuesday's practice.
The Canadiens are off until Thursday against the Sabres, so as long as Domi's able to return to practice Wednesday, he shouldn't be forced to miss any game action due to his illness. The 24-year-old pivot has been in a major slump recently, having notched just one helper in his last seven contests, but he's too talented for that trend to continue for long.
Domi had an assist, three shots on net and a blocked shot in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over Vegas.
Domi's hard work along the boards in the offensive zone loosened the puck and led to Montreal's third goal of the first period. The point snapped a five-game scoreless skid for the forward, who recently authored a productive four-week stretch during which Domi registered 15 points in 13 games. He heads into Montreal's bye week with 34 points (12 goals, 22 assists) through 50 games.
Domi had a power-play assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Red Wings.
One day after seeing his 12-game point streak end, Domi began a new one when Nick Suzuki scored on a rebound of a Domi shot on the man advantage. He leads the Canadiens with 11 points and 10 assists while on the power play.
