When Max Domi makes his NHL debut — be it this season or next — the second-most happiest kid in the rink might be his captain’s son.
Josh Doan, son of Arizona Coyotes leader Shane, is a Max Domi nut.
“I got a 12-year-old son who follows him so closely because of the relationship with the father and son. So we follow him all the time,” says Doan. “He keeps me updated.”
What Doan and the rest of the Coyotes have been updated on is a litany of highlight-reel goals and a dominant prime-time performance as a key cog in Team Canada’s World Junior Championship gold medal tournament.
“The shift where he blocks two or three shots and kinda limps off the ice,” Doan says of the Canada-Finland game. “As a hockey player, everyone takes pride in blocking shots and doing that stuff. But to be the guy that’s also capable of making a pass to thread the needle backdoor, it’s unbelievable that he’s doing all that. It was fun to watch.”
