This year was the first time I’ve had the chance to catch the Coyotes’ prospect development camp in a couple years. There were a few players that caught my eye, one being goalie prospect, Louis Domingue.
Louis Domingue was originally drafted by the Coyotes in the 5th round (138th overall) in 2010. In that time Domingue has spent his time in the QMJHL. Having started out ‘09-‘10 with the Moncton Wildcats, Domingue was traded to the Quebec Ramparts. After settling in with the Ramparts he posted a .910 save-percentage and a 2.54 goals-against average. Under the guidance of legendary goalie turned head coach Patrick Roy, Domingue continued his strong play well into the next two seasons, wrapping up each campaign averaging a save percentage of .912 and a goals-against of 2.61.
Louis Domingue is noted for his size, at 6’3, Domingue is comparable to Coyotes’ goaltender Mike Smith; taking up much space. Something I noticed about Louis Domingue while attending the Coyotes’ development camp, he was the only goalie to come out of the crease and play the puck.
Head coach Patrick Roy on Louis Domingue, “Big and tall goaltender who covers the net well, and has very quick legs. He has good vision for transition and even owns great puck handling abilities.”
