Max Domi (born March 2, 1995) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for the Arizona Coyotes of the National Hockey League (NHL). Domi was originally selected eighth overall in the 2011 OHL Priority Selection by the Kingston Frontenacs. He was selected by the Phoenix Coyotes in the first round, 12th overall, of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Domi is of Albanian descent; his paternal grandparents immigrated to Canada during wars and tumult in their native country. His father is former Toronto Maple Leafs legend Tie Domi. Growing up, Domi's favourite team was the Toronto Maple Leafs, partially due to his father's many seasons with the club.

Domi was selected by the Kingston Frontenacs with the eighth pick of the 2011 Ontario Hockey League draft, but was subsequently traded for three second-round draft picks to the London Knights. In his OHL debut against the Saginaw Spirit, on September 23, 2011, Domi scored a hat trick and recorded an assist to lead the Knights in an 8–0 victory. During the 2011–12 season, he won a bronze medal with Team Ontario at the 2012 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, and helped the Knights capture the 2012 OHL Championship. Domi was rated as a top prospect who fulfilled the expectation to be a first round selection at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
During the 2012–13 season, Domi played with Team Canada to win a gold medal at the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, was an invited participant at the 2013 CHL Top Prospects Game and led his London Knights team to capture their second consecutive OHL Championship. He was also a part of the Canadian team that won gold at the 2015 World Junior Ice Hockey Championship, being named the tournament's Best Forward and entering the All-Star Team.
At the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Domi was selected 12th overall by the Phoenix Coyotes. His father, Tie, had previously played for the franchise when it was known as the Winnipeg Jets (the team would move to Phoenix in 1996). On July 14, 2013, Domi was signed to a three-year entry level contract with the Coyotes.
Domi has Type 1 Diabetes which he was diagnosed at age 12 following a hockey tournament in Detroit. He regulates his blood sugar levels using an insulin pump attached to his hip. During games, he excuses himself every 15 minutes to test his blood glucose level. He wears number 16 in homage to Bobby Clarke, a famed hockey player who also suffered with the condition.
Arizona Coyotes' GM Don Maloney confirmed fan speculation by stating that he acquired prospect Anthony Duclair from the New York Rangers in the hopes that he would develop line chemistry with a rookie they already possessed, Domi. This is due to the fact that during the 2015 World Junior Ice Hockey Championship both Duclair and Domi showed visible chemistry and were key components in leading team Canada to gold.
Domi scored his first career assist and goal in his NHL debut against the Los Angeles Kings on October 9, 2015 against Jonathan Quick.
On January 12, 2016, Domi recorded his first career NHL hat trick against the Edmonton Oilers. Two of his goals came on the power play and defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson assisted on all three goals.
In his first NHL season, Domi developed instant line chemistry with fellow rookie Anthony Duclair earning the duo the nickname "The Killer D's."
Domi represented Team Canada at the 2015 World Junior Ice Hockey Championship, winning gold. Domi later made his senior national debut with Canada at the 2016 World Championship.
