Arizona Coyotes forward Max Domi called for stricter immigration controls on Sunday in the wake of a violent attack in Edmonton. Domi is the son of former NHL enforcer Tie Domi and was born in Winnipeg. He tweeted Sunday evening about a Somali refugee who is facing a number of charges, including five counts of attempted murder, dangerous driving and participation in a terrorist activity after allegedly attacking a police officer and running over four pedestrians. “Really hope everyone in Edmonton is ok. We’re behind you. This is why we have to be aware of some of the people we let into our country,” said Domi, who added an emoji of a Canadian flag. The attacks occurred Saturday night near Commonwealth Stadium during a game between the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Outside the stadium, Edmonton police Const. Mike Chernyk, with his marked, flashing cruiser was handling crowd control and security when a speeding white Chevy Malibu rammed through a barrier and hit his car, sending him flying five metres through the air.
