What a story Arber Xhekaj has been! The writing of his book has barely begun when it already becomes a best-seller with the title: believe in your dreams.

In addition to making the team through the roof in his second training camp, Xhekaj became the youngest undrafted player in Habs history to record a point at 21 years and 258 days.


It says (once again) a lot about him and his attitude.


The fact that he went from "undrafted and ignored by every team in the league" to "regular NHL defenseman" so quickly is truly remarkable.

Other undrafted players have managed to establish themselves, but almost never as quickly as Xhekaj.

His strength of character, passion and work ethic are impeccable, and we are just beginning to explore the limits of his great potential.

That's very impressive and we hope the Habs will keep him around for a long time.
