History

2007-08: Louis Domingue was drafted in the first round (13th overall) of the 2008 QMJHL Draft by the Moncton Wildcats.

2008-09: In his QMJHL rookie season, Domingue played in 12 games for the Wildcats.  He posted a 2.51 goals-against average and a .924 save percentage while turning in a 5-5-0 record.  Domingue dressed for 10 playoff games but did not see any action.

2009-10: Domingue began the season with the Wildcats, playing in 22 games for that club.  He registered a 2.81 goals-against average and a .902 save percentage in those games, while going 11-9-0 for the Wildcats.  Domingue was traded to the Quebec Remparts, appearing in 19 games for that club.  He posted a 2.54 goals-against average along with a .910 save percentage.  In 9 playoff games for the Remparts, Domingue turned in a 4.35 goals-against average and a .863 save percentage in the post-season.  He played for Team Orr at the 2010 CHL Top Prospects Game.

2010-11: Domingue played in a career-high 57 games in his third QMJHL season; playing a full-season for the Quebec Remparts after being obtained in a mid-season trade a year earlier. The Remparts had the league’s third-best record in the regular season and Domingue was 37-15 with two of the losses in overtime and two shutouts. He posted a 2.65 GAA and .898 save percentage. In the playoffs, he was 11-6 with one shutout and had a 2.47 GAA and .913 save percentage as Quebec reached the league semifinals. Domingue was one of four goalies invited to the summer tryout camp for Canada’s 2012 U20 World Junior Championship team.

2011-12: Domingue split the goaltending duties for the QMJHL’s Quebec Remparts with Senators’ prospect Francois Brassard in his third major junior season. He appeared in 39 games and was 23-8-4 with 4 shutouts; posting a 2.61 goals against and .914 save percentage. Quebec finished third in the East Division and reached the second round of the playoffs. Domingue played all 11 playoff games for the Remparts and was 7-4 with a 2.65 goals against and .897 save percentage.

2012-13: Domingue appeared in two AHL games with the Coyotes’ affiliate in Portland, spending most of his first pro season with the ECHL’s Gwinnett Gladiators. He was 1-0 with a 2.40 goals against and .931 save percentage for the Pirates, who finished second in the Atlantic Division. Domingue played in 34 ECHL regular season games with the Gladiators and was 23-9-2 with 3 shutouts; posting a 2.69 goals against and .904 save percentage. Gwinnett was first in the South Division and reached the second round. Domingue was 6-4 with 2 shutouts in the playoffs and had a 2.23 goals against and .926 save percentage.

2013-14: Domingue earned a call-up to Arizona AHL affiliate Portland after dominating in the ECHL early on in the season for Gwinnett. After struggling early on with the Pirates he showed steady progress, separating himself from Mike Lee on the Coyotes’ depth chart. He was 9-18-2 with 1 shutout and had a 3.63 goals against and .890 save percentage in 36 regular season games for the Pirates. Portland finished last in the Atlantic Division, missing the playoffs. Domingue was 1-3-2 with 1 shutout and had a 2.01 goals against and .939 save percentage in seven games with Gwinnett.

2014-15: Domingue made his NHL debut with the Coyotes in a relief appearance January 31st game against Ottawa and earned the win in his first NHL start the next night against Montreal. He appeared in seven NHL games in his third pro season after spending time in both the AHL and the ECHL. Domingue was 1-2-1 with a 2.73 goals against and .911 save percentage for Arizona. He was 11-6-1 with a 2.68 goals against and .908 save percentage in 20 regular season games for the AHL’s Portland Pirates. In five AHL playoff games he was 2-2 with 1 shutout and had a 2.37 goals against and .925 save percentage. He played two ECHL games for Gwinnett and was 1-1 with 1 shutout, posting a 1.01 goals against and .958 save percentage. Domingue was re-signed by Arizona to a one-year contract as a restricted free agent in September 2015.

Talent Analysis

Domingue is a big goalie and has the size and athleticism that is so often coveted in the crease. He plays a sound positional game and is able to make the majority of his saves look easy.

Future

Domingue enters his fourth training camp with Arizona competing with recently-acquired Anders Lindback for the backup spot to Mike Smith in 2015-16. Domingue has shown steady progress in the organization working his way up from the ECHL to AHL levels — the next hurdle is the most difficult. Long-term his size and athleticism suggest he can be an NHL starter one day. The key issue will be consistency.
