2013-14: Domingue dominated the ECHL early on in the season for Gwynnet. He earned himself a call-up to Portland. Domingue struggled somewhat against AHL competition, compiling a 3.63 GAA and .890 save percentage. However, he improved as the season progressed, separating himself from Mike Lee in the organization’s depth chart.
A big goalie at 6’3", Domingue has the size and athleticism that is so often coveted in the crease. Plays a sound positional game and is able to make the majority of his saves look easy.
Domingue heads into training camp with a solid grip on the back-up job in Portland. However, he needs to perform well when he gets starts. The goalie position is hypercompetitive in the Coyotes organization. If he doesn’t show progression, Domingue could easily wind up back in the ECHL.
