"LONDON, ONT. - Mark Hunter is no doubt happy he's had the opportunity to sit on his tractor the last week or so, having little to worry about except getting those soybeans in the ground.
He doesn't have to deal with the swirl surrounding Max Domi.
For those who haven’t followed As the Domi Turns, the first episode had young Max telling Ontario Hockey League teams that he was not going to play in the league but rather worry about his education and eventually play at an American college.
Of course, as with most soap operas there are always subplots. In this one young Domi really wants to play in the OHL but only in certain cities.
The plan goes awry when Kingston general manager Doug Gilmour steps in to foil the plan. He drafts young Domi and the plot thickens.
Domi won’t go.
Enter the London Knights or White Knight as they like to be known. Suspicion remains that London was young Domi’s initial destination. Not surprisingly, the Knights would love to help Domi out of this distressful situation.
And what would a good soap opera be without a complicated family situation. Tie Domi is a former NHL player. He and Max’s mother are divorced. Mom would like son to go to university.
Because of OHL rules, nothing can be done until almost September.
Hunter is hoping what he plants now, he’ll harvest in September and it isn’t soybeans.
Tie Domi made a visit to London last week. Hunter confirmed the visit.
Domi flew in by helicopter, talked with Hunter and left via the same transport method.
“No comment,” Hunter said.
Not about the conversation, Hunter admitted to chatting with the former tough guy. The no comment was about whether Domi flew in by whirlybird or not.
“I had conversations with Gilmour and Domi,” Hunter said. “A lot of people are talking to them.”
Whether a deal is done and just waiting for September to roll around earned yet another “no comment.”
That will be the final episode of As the Domi Turns."
Sounds like a bitter custody battle. Mom's pulling one arm in the college direction, dad Tie is pulling the other arm in the London Knights direction.
Poor kid. I wonder if any has bothered to ask him what HE wants.
