Phoenix Coyotes prospect Max Domi is in the midst of a pretty good run right now. 

He has 18 goals and 62 points in 32 games with the CHL's London Knights this season, and turned in a pretty impressive performance en route to a gold medal at the World Junior Championships with 5-5-10 totals in seven games for Canada. He was named the top NHL-affiliated prospect by TSN's Craig Button earlier this month.

The 12th overall pick of the 2013 draft, Domi is the son of famed NHL fighter Tie Domi, though it seems he didn't inherit his dad's pugilism skills and instead got lightning-quick instincts to go with his equally fast hands and feet. Witness the goal he scored against the Sarnia Sting on Friday night: 

At 19 years old, he has some work to do before cracking the big leagues, but if the folks over at Hockey's Future are to be believed, he's in a for a long, highlight-filled career: 

"Sometimes you watch Domi on the ice dipsy-doodling through an entire roster and you wonder how this kid won’t succeed."

"Domi is truly a kid whose talents are bigger than the game he plays. That’s fine when you are better than 90-percent of the other kids on the ice, but he will have to find a way to integrate his teammates in the game more as he progresses as he won’t have that freedom to freewheel."
