Domi expects to have fun in reunion with Drouin on Canadiens – NHL.com

VOORHEES, N.J. — Max Domi last played with Jonathan Drouin for Canada at the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup.

It was an experience that ended with a gold medal, and Domi and Drouin have the chance to rekindle that relationship this season with the Montreal Canadiens.

Domi was traded to the Canadiens by the Arizona Coyotes on June 15 for forward Alex Galchenyuk, and it’s possible he could play left wing on Drouin’s line this season.

“[Drouin] is a good buddy,” Domi said following his first game at the Checking For Charity tournament at Flyers Skate Zone on Friday. “When you play with someone like that, you keep in contact and you’re always cheering them on. Super skilled, great guy off the ice, great teammate. It’s going to be fun whether we play together or not.”

Drouin had 46 points (13 goals, 33 assists) in 77 games for the Canadiens last season, his first in Montreal after being acquired in a trade from the Tampa Bay Lightning exactly one year prior to the Domi trade and first playing center in the NHL.

Domi, who was selected by the Coyotes with the No. 12 pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, said he’s moved on from any lingering emotion from the trade and is looking forward to the opportunity he has now with the Canadiens.

“It’s something I’m excited about,” he said. “Not upset about it, that’s for sure. I’ll miss my teammates and miss the [Coyotes] organization and living there and being part of that group, growing with all those young guys. I wish those guys the best, they’re going to be a heck of a hockey team for a long time. I’m all about Montreal right now.”
