Max Domi is off to quite a start in the desert. Through his first 23 games with the Arizona Coyotes, the left wing ranks second among all NHL rookies in points, goals and assists.

But Domi impresses off the ice as well.

On Monday, Domi posted a picture to his Instagram in honor of Diabetes Awareness Month. He asked followers and fans to like the picture with the promise that he would donate one dollar for each like to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

 

 

The cause hits close to home for Domi, who has been a Type 1 diabetic since age 12.

Domi’s Instagram post — which already has more than 17,000 likes — isn’t the first time that the 20-year old has used his platform to bring attention to diabetes.

In July, Domi was part of a video campaign called Powered By Accuracy in support of diabetes research and advocacy.
