How Max Domi is using positivity to overcome early Maple Leaf struggles

TAMPA, Fla.
– Anthony Duclair has known Max Domi since he was a teenager and isn’t surprised his friend is headed for big things with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
“He wants to prove, more than anything, that he can be an impact player,” San Jose Sharks forward Duclair Domi said of Domi’s arrival in Toronto.

Duclair was a roommate in Arizona NHL and saw Domi go through the ups and downs of the NHL game.
That includes Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe, who has been at the forefront of many players dealing with the ebbs and flows of the game for the first time in Toronto.

Now he sees the snapper struggling early in the season.
“He’s got a lot on his mind,” the Leafs coach said of the offseason acquisition, praising Domi’s work ethic and noting the forward is trying to learn a new system early.

When Leafs general manager Brad Treliving signed Domi to a one-year, $3 million contract this offseason, Treliving was optimistic about his prospects as a new addition.
“I really think we’re about to see the best of Max,” Treliving said.
“He wants to play in Toronto for a long time.
