Canadiens’ Max Domi switches agents, has not asked for trade from Montreal

Chris Johnston and Elliotte Friedman break down the latest news around the NHL, with word on who the Washington Capitals might be interested in to take over as head coach, and GM news in Arizona.

After a sterling debut season in Montreal turned into a more tumultuous follow-up campaign with the Canadiens, some have wondered if a trade could be coming for Max Domi.

While it’s unclear at this point what the off-season holds for him and his club, it appears a trade has not been sought by Domi and his camp, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, who also reported that the 25-year-old forward’s camp has undergone some recent changes.

“The news got out that Max Domi has a new agent — he’s now represented by Darren Ferris,” Friedman said Saturday during Hockey Night in Canada‘s ‘Headlines’ segment. “He met with Marc Bergevin, he didn’t really want to say too much about the meeting, but the one thing he was willing to say was that Max Domi has not asked for a trade from the Montreal Canadiens.

“I don’t know where this is going to go, but Domi has not asked to be traded.”

Domi enjoyed an explosive 2018-19 season with Montreal after the club acquired him from the Arizona Coyotes, putting up 28 goals and 72 points in his first year at the Bell Centre.

This season, those totals dropped to 17 goals and 44 points, with Domi’s average ice-time dropping from 17:23 last season to just 14:21 in these playoffs.

Currently a restricted free agent after earning $3.15 million in 2019-20, Domi is now represented by Ferris, who also represents the likes of Mitch Marner and Taylor Hall.
