MONTREAL – Max Domi deserves to be an NHL All-Star. You can help make that happen.
The NHL All-Star Fan Vote is under way and fans have a chance to select the divisional captains for the big game, which will take place on January 26 in San Jose.
Through 32 games, the 23-year-old forward sits atop all three major offensive categories for the Habs.
His 14 goals have him tied with assistant captain Brendan Gallagher, and he leads the squad with 18 assists and 32 points.
He also leads the Canadiens with an 18.9% shooting percentage (did someone say “Accuracy Shooting Competition?”).
As it stands, Domi is the lone point-per-game player on the roster.
His seven multi-point efforts also have him tied for the team lead with linemate Jonathan Drouin and defenseman Jeff Petry.
Talk about consistency
Affectionately known as “Shootsy,” Domi has strung together a pair of rather impressive point streaks so far this season.
Between October 15 and October 27, the four-year NHL veteran produced points in six straight games, collecting five goals and eight points during that span.
After being held off the scoresheet for just one game, the Canadiens’ No. 13 began another remarkable stretch.
This time, it went on for 11 consecutive contests.
Between November 1 and November 21, Domi lit the lamp six times and amassed 15 points.
According to the NHL’s Public Relations Department, that made him just the sixth player in franchise history to register a point streak of at least 11 games in his first campaign with the Canadiens.
Putting his season in context
It was during his rookie season in 2015-16 that Domi set single-season highs with 18 goals and 52 points with Arizona.
Both of those stats are in serious danger of being shattered, though.
Domi needs just four more markers and 20 more points to match those numbers with 50 regular season games left on the schedule.
He is also at the half-way point of matching his single-season high of 36 assists, which was set last season.
At the pace Domi is going, we have a good feeling he’ll be taking those numbers to brand new heights this year.
Train Like a Pro
We’re also officially submitting these two HabsTV videos as additional evidence that Domi would be an excellent addition to the All-Star festivities in Northern California.
