Max Domi will never be mistaken for his father, Tie Domi.

Tie Domi racked up over 3,500 penalty minutes in just over 1,000 career NHL games.

Max Domi likes to use his hands for putting the puck in the net. The Arizona Coyotes 2013 first-round pick has 64 points in 33 Ontario Hockey League games with the London Knights this season.

The 19-year-old made an alley-oop pass to himself Friday night for his 19th goal of the season.

Flyers’ Mason could start tonight vs. Coyotes

Steve Mason could make his first start since Dec. 18 tonight when the Philadelphia Flyers continue their eight-game road trip in Arizona.

Mason tweaked his back during practice on Dec. 19 and has been out of action since.

“I’m not unsure that he can play,” Flyers’ coach Craig Berube told CSNPhilly.com on Sunday. “To me, it’s about practice time and that kind of stuff. That’s all. He feels good. There’s a good chance he could be in.”

Mason, 26, is 6-10-5 this season with a 2.49 GAA, .921 save percentage.

“Today was a full-fledged practice and it felt great,” Mason said following Sunday’s practice.

“Practice was fine,” he said. “I felt fine going back after [Saturday’s] morning skate. The biggest test was flying here and sitting on the plane for hours and I thought it was going to tighten up a bit, but I felt great this morning. It’s all good news.”

The Flyers are 3-1 on their current eight-game road trip. Ray Emery is 2-1 while rookie Rob Zepp won his lone start.
