Recently, I wrote a piece going over four teams that are currently linked to Max Domi. The Toronto Maple Leafs, New Jersey Devils, New York Rangers, and Dallas Stars are all hoping to acquire the 27-year-old forward, and it ultimately makes sense when looking at how well he has been playing this campaign. In 48 games on the year, he has 14 goals to go along with a solid 35 points. As a result of this, he would be a solid addition to each of these clubs’ forward groups if acquired.

Yet, it now appears that Domi’s trade market is heating up even more. According to The Fourth Period, two new teams have entered the sweepstakes. Let’s take a look at each of them now.


Winnipeg Jets

After missing the playoffs last season, there was a ton of speculation over the summer that the Winnipeg Jets were going to make serious changes to their roster. However, management decided to give this roster’s core one last chance, and it has turned out to be the right move. At the time of this writing, the Jets have an impressive 32-19-1 record and are second in the Central Division. They have bounced back beautifully, but if they hope to go on a real run this spring, they would be wise to add to their forward group. As a result, it makes sense that Domi is on their radar.

It is rather apparent that the Jets could use a player like Domi on their roster right now. When looking at their current top six, it is fair to argue that he would be a notable upgrade over players like Karson Kuhlman, Saku Maenalanen, and Morgan Barron in it. When looking a specific spot for him, I could see a second line consisting of him, Pierre-Luc Dubois, and Nikolaj Ehlers being truly lethal. However, Domi could also work quite nicely on their third line due to his strong secondary scoring and tenacious style of play.
