Tahir "Tie" Domi (b. November 1st 1969 in Windsor, Ontario, Canada) is a former professional right winger who played in the National Hockey League for the New York Rangers, the Winnipeg Jets and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Nicknamed the DOMInator, Domi was a first and foremost an enforcer. Along with Mike Ricci, he played with the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League before being drafted to the NHL by the Maple Leafs in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft, 27th overall.

Domi was traded to the Rangers in 1990, earning his reputation of tough guy after a legendary fight with Bob Probert. Two years later, he was dealt to the Jets, where he became Teemu Selänne's bodyguard on the ice in his rookie season. He even provided an assist on Teemu's record-breaking goal.

Domi was traded back to the Maple Leafs in 1995, where he quickly became a fan favourite. He played there for a whole decade before Pat Quinn hastened his retirement by having him a healthy scratch for the game versus the New York Islanders on March 10th 2006. Domi publicly stated he wasn't happy with that decision, which was underlined by his decision to stay in his hotel room and only arrive at the game after the second period was over. This episode quite possibly led was the reason why the Leafs bought out Domi's contract in June 2006. He became a free agent on July 1st; on September 19th, he announced his retirement, stating that he couldn't picture himself in another uniform than the Leafs'. He joined TSN's broadcasting crew.
