A BIG TURNAROUND FOR ARBER XHEKAJ AHEAD OF TONIGHT'S GAME?

NOV 22, 2022  (11H07)      MARCO
At yesterday's morning practice, young defenseman Arber Xhekaj was among the "extras", along with Chris Wideman.

Everything indicated that Martin St-Louis was going to leave him out against the Buffalo Sabres.

After all, it was logical because the Habs' head coach mentioned last weekend that there would be a rotation between Xhekaj, Harris and Kovacevic.

So it seemed like Arber's turn to be in the stands, and that's what the duos presented yesterday announced (by the CH).


Big turnaround.

Well today, for the second time in less than a week, we see another turn of events and a twist in favor of "Jacko".

"Arber Xhekaj skates with Johnathan Kovacevic this morning, Jordan Harris with Chris Wideman. It suggests Harris won't play, for a second straight game." - Arpon Basu, The Athletic

See the new surprise duos:

"Matheson-Edmundson
Guhle-Savard
Xhekaj-Kovacevic"

- Via Arpon Basu, The Athletic

Still waiting for final confirmation, but wow!

More details to follow!
