Will the son of the Leafs legend be one and done in Toronto?

The Toronto Maple Leafs brought aboard the son of beloved franchise favorite Tie Domi last summer when they inked Mx Domi to a one-year contract. Despite the younger Domi saying that he was looking for stability after having already played for six teams during his still relatively young NHL career, he agreed to a one-year "prove it" style deal. 

And now that the season is over for the Leafs after yet another disappointing early exit from the Stanley Cup Playoffs, speculation is abounding regarding the plans of general manager Brad Treliving with respect to player personnel. While there's plenty of attention being given to the futures of Core 4 players Mitch Marner and John Tavares with the franchise, fans are right to wonder whether or not Domi will be given a second chance with the Leafs next season in the form of a new contract. 

According to David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period, Domi will be on the radar of the Seattle Kraken, who have just hired Dan Bylsma as the 2nd head coach in team history after the termination of Dave Hakstol.

In his first season with the Leafs, Domi scored nine goals with 38 assists, along with a +10 rating. However, he went through a prolonged scoring slump to begin his tenure in Toronto, not lighting the lamp until December. He also registered a goal and three assists while playing in all seven postseason games against the Boston Bruins.
