Report: Max Domi fires agent, done playing for Montreal

We have been reporting for weeks that Max Domi appears to be heading out of Montreal and it's becoming more of a reality each day.

Domi has now fired his agent, Pat Brisson, who is very close friends to Habs GM, Marc Bergevin. His dad Tie, is apparently trying to get his close buddy Mario Lemieux in Pittsburgh to influence a trade, and it's reported the Pens and Habs have held discussions. Domi has also taken down 'Montreal Canadiens' from all of his social media accounts. 

The relationship with his head coach, Claude Julien has not been great, and that's certainly influencing the decision as well. Domi had a mediocre year, but never really found a consistent spot in the Top-6 for Montreal. He didn't score in the playoffs, and struggled to find his game as he was moved back and forth from wing to center. 

Habs GM, Marc Bergevin had an interesting quote once the Canadiens were eliminated regarding Domi: 

He’s better suited to answer regarding his performance. Max has a lot of potential. I can’t speak for his future.

Look for Domi's next agent to help facilitate a trade out of Montreal. Keep an eye during the NHL draft in October, that could be Max Domi's last day as a Hab.
