DULUTH, Ga. – The Arizona Coyotes, NHL affiliate of the Gwinnett Gladiators, announced that goaltender Louis Domingue has been recalled by the team. Domingue is serving as the back-up goaltender to fellow ECHL alum Mike Smith in Saturday’s game at Ottawa.
Domingue, 22, has appeared in 43 games with Gwinnett since 2012, and most recently made a two-game rehab assignment with the Gladiators on Jan. 2 and 3. The third-year professional was 1-1-0 with a 1.01 goals-against average and a .958 save percentage, including a shutout of the Elmira Jackals on Jan. 2.
The Mont. St. Hilaire, Quebec native has played in 13 games for the Portland Pirates of the AHL this season, going 8-4-1 with a 2.40 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage. He was selected by the Coyotes in the fifth round (138th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Domingue is the second Gladiator goaltender to receive the call to the NHL this month. Mike Lee was also with the Coyotes from Jan. 15-21, receiving his assignment directly from Gwinnett to Arizona.
