Former Toronto Maple Leafs enforcer Tie Domi has decided to retire, The Canadian Press reported Tuesday, citing an unnamed source.
The source told the CP that Domi, a Maple Leafs fan favorite — and favorite target in opposing NHL arenas — for his aggressive style of play, will officially announce his retirement Tuesday afternoon.
Domi, 36, despite his fan favorite status, was bought out by the Leafs earlier this summer as the new-look NHL empahized offense and fighting declined. He had only five goals and 11 assists in 2005-06 as the Maple Leafs missed the playoffs.
No confirmation on the rumor that he will donate his cement head to a construction company for use as a wrecking ball.
