NEWARK, N.J. -- He looks like a chip off the old block. Max Domi is his own man on the ice, though. The son of former Maple Leafs enforcer Tie Domi, Max uses his hands to score or set up goals rather than administer justice. His offensive creativity convinced the Phoenix Coyotes to take the 18-year-old from Toronto 12th overall in Sundays NHL draft. "He was pretty pumped," Max said of his fathers reaction to going in the first round. "Hes an emotional guy, obviously. Hes very happy. He had a long, successful career in the NHL and he wants nothing less for me." Tie Domi was a second-round pick of Torontos, going 27th overall in 1988. He played two games for the Leafs before spending six season with the Rangers and Jets. In 1994, he returned to Toronto where he spent his last 11 seasons as a Maple Leaf. He finished with 104 goals, 141 assists and 3,515 penalty minutes in 1,020 NHL games. In contrast, Max tied for eighth in regular-season scoring with 87 points (39 goals and 48 assists) and was a plus-33 in 64 games this season for the London Knights. He also had 71 penalty minutes. "A natural goal-scorer, everywhere hes been," said Dan Marr, director of NHL Central Scouting. "Max has a finishing touch. And that can separate him from a lot of players. A lot of players can get chances from their abilities and their smarts but can they finish? Max can finish. "Hes not the biggest guy but he certainly plays bigger than his size. It doesnt influence or impact his game one way or another. And hes like Brett Hull, hes smart, he knows how to get open and hes ready to take the shot." The five-foot-nine, 197-pound forward can also play provider as he showed in the Memorial Cup, feathering a pass between his legs to set up Bo Horvat (who went ninth overall Sunday to Vancouver). The younger Domi is just as poised off the ice, handling questions about his famous father with ease. Is it tough having Domi as a last name, he was asked. "No, not at all. Its part of who I am and I cant change who my Dad is, obviously. Ive just got to use it as an advantage. Obviously some guys are going to kind of go after you a little bit more but in the end, like I said, you cant really change that ... Ive got to be around some pretty cool people along the way. Its been a roller-coaster but its helped a lot." He calls his father his No. 1 fan. "Hes a big reason for me being what I am today. On and off the ice, hes a first-class guy. He played a long and successful career in the NHL. He didnt do the easiest job, but he found a way to do it. He was a great teammate every day ... I definitely take a lot of notes from him." Max was a member of Canadas gold medal team at the 2012 U18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament. This season, he was second in playoff scoring with 32 points (11-21) in 21 games. "Yeah, I was lucky," he said, shrugging off a compliment. A Type-1 diabetic and celiac, Domi changed his number from No. 13 to No. 16 after his diagnosis in honour of Hall of Famer Bobby Clarke, who overcame diabetes to play in the NHL.

He interviewed with Cleveland for the offensive co-ordinator job before taking the same position with Baltimore.Trestman is the fourth former head coach in four years to fill the position with the Ravens. He follows Cam Cameron, Jim Caldwell and Gary Kubiak. Trestmans first head-coaching gig was with the CFLs Montreal Alouettes from 2008-2012.Kubiak, the former coach of the Houston Texans, served one year before leaving to become head coach of the Denver Broncos this week..ddddddddddddFormer Broncos offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase also interviewed for the Baltimore job.Ravens coach John Harbaugh moved quickly to fill the position because hes headed to Hawaii to coach in the Pro Bowl.Baltimore set team marks in points (409) and yards (5,838) in 2014. In addition, quarterback Joe Flacco threw for a career-high 3,986 yards and 27 touchdowns while being sacked only 19 times compared to 48 in 2013.After the Ravens fell to New England in the second round of the playoffs, there was hope the offence would be even better in its second season under Kubiak. He expressed a desire to return — until the job in Denver opened up.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
